The coronavirus isn’t stopping, and neither can we. Every day, people are asking how they can help. Here, we offer the top ways you can join us and become an advocate for health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.

1. Get vaccinated and boosted.

By getting your primary vaccination series and your booster shot(s), you can better protect yourself and those you love. COVID-19 vaccines help prevent serious illness and death. Like the flu and other infectious disease, staying up to date on your vaccinations is key to protection. Learn more about staying up to date on your COVID-19 vaccinations and booster shot(s).

2. Follow the pillars of infection prevention.

Knowing when to wear a mask is extremely important. See your county’s community level to know the COVID-19 outlook for your area and when to wear a mask per the CDC. And remember, regardless of community levels, these 7 simple and effective tips can help keep you safe and healthy.

3. Self test.

COVID-19 self-tests or at-home tests offer quick results – anywhere at any time. If you think you’ve been exposed, know someone who has, are going to an indoor event or gathering or you have symptoms, self-tests can help you prevent possible exposure to others. Whereas a positive test result is most likely reliable, a negative test does not rule out a COVID-19 infection. If you self-test and continue to have symptoms, a PCR test is recommended. See when to take a self-test.

4. Read our blog posts about COVID-19.
