The best protection against COVID-19 is to not get exposed to someone with the virus. If you stay home and distance yourself far from others you can keep from picking up the virus. You should also observe public health practices by washing your hands frequently, avoid touching your nose, eyes and mouth with unwashed hands, avoid being around anyone sick, practice social distance with at least 6 feet between you and others, and wear a face covering in public.
