The best way to stop the spread of COVID-19 and thus prevent mutation of the virus is:

●Stay home if you are sick.

●Get tested if you feel unwell, even if you don’t believe it is COVID. You can find testing centers at VaccinateSalineCountyKS.com/testing or contact your local medical provider.

●Get vaccinated. You can find a vaccine at vaccines.gov or contact your local medical provider.

●Wear a mask, especially if you are not fully vaccinated. If you are fully vaccinated, wear a mask when indoors in crowded spaces.

●Maintain at least 6 feet of distance between yourself and those with whom you do not live.

●Do not travel to “hot spots."

●If you test positive, isolate immediately and be open and honest with COVID caseworkers about your contacts.
