If you need help deciding if you should seek medical care, access the CDC Coronavirus Self-Checker on the CDC COVID-19 Symptoms page by clicking on the Coronavirus Self-Checker button at the top of the page.


The CDC recommends individuals and families follow everyday preventive measures including:

  • Getting a vaccine when it is made available to you.
  • Wearing a mask in indoor public places if you are unvaccinated and over 2 years old. Generally, masks are not needed outdoors, unless in crowded outdoor spaces in areas with high numbers of COVID-19 cases.
  • Social distancing – avoiding crowds and crowded spaces, avoiding handshaking and hugging, deliberately staying at least six feet away from other people, and replacing in-person visits with remote check-ins using technology.
  • Stay home and away from others when you are sick with any respiratory disease symptoms.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then dispose of the tissue.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60–95% alcohol.
  • Routinely clean frequently touched surfaces and objects.
