Use your head — Slow the spread

All Marylanders are advised to take precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water
  • Cover your mouth and nose while sneezing or coughing
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Avoid contact with sick people
  • If you are sick, stay home and call your health care provider
  • Practice social distancing — keep distance between yourself and others and avoid crowds

All Marylanders are also advised to practice social distancing. Social distancing is a way to keep people from interacting closely or frequently enough to spread an infectious disease. Social distancing can take many forms, depending on your lifestyle and your family and work situation, and can include the following habits and steps:

  • Avoid handshaking, hugging and other intimate types of greeting
  • Avoid non-essential travel (your health care provider may have specific guidance for your situation)
  • Avoid crowds, especially in poorly ventilated spaces
  • Work from home if possible for your work situation
  • Avoid unnecessary errands — consider ways to have essential items, like food and other household supplies, brought to your house through online delivery services or through family or social networks
