What are some ways to slow the spread of COVID-19?

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. Learn how COVID-19 spreads and practice these actions to help prevent the spread of this illness. To help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Get a COVID-19 vaccine when it’s available to you.
  • Wear a mask to protect yourself and others and stop the spread of COVID-19.
  • Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from others who don’t live with you.
  • Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces. The more people you are in contact with, the more likely you are to be exposed to COVID-19.
  • Clean your hands often, either with soap and water for 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces daily.
  • Stay home if you are sick or have symptoms.
  • Monitor your health daily.

Can you get COVID-19 from books, DVDs or other library materials?

In a recent update, the CDC noted that the virus spreads easily between people, but it does not spread easily from touching surfaces. The CDC advises that the best way to protect yourself—and others—is to maintain a distance of six feet, wash your hands often, and wear a mask in public. Learn more here. If it makes you feel more comfortable, you can leave your borrowed library material untouched for at least 72 hours.
