CDC recommends that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
Face coverings may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others.
Face coverings should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

Wash your hands often.
Especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

Avoid close contact with individuals who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
If you are sick:

  • Stay home
  • Practice good respiratory hygiene (cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash)
  • Wash hands often
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces or objects often using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe

COVID-19 is an ongoing threat to our public health, one that we can and will work through. It is important to help protect those in high-risk categories, such as the elderly and those with chronic medical conditions.

As we work our plan to move beyond the coronavirus, we must get our state back to work and our children’s education must not be compromised. While there are inherent risks when confronting the unknown, there are greater risks in doing nothing.

Steve Helms is confident that we can restore our state’s high economic growth while we protect our families and friends from this unprecedented health concern.

He has heard from many of you on the difficulties that you and your families have faced during this time. We will learn from this health crisis so that we are better prepared in the future.

Please feel free to contact Steve Helms about how you think our state could be better prepared for similar events.
