How to Protect Yourself and Others
Nevada County Public Health Department urges everyone to follow these basic tips to stay healthy and help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community:
- Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds. Wash them before and after wearing a cloth facial
covering and after being out in public spaces. If hand washing is not available, please use hand sanitizer.
- Wear face cloth coverings when in public to help protect others.
- If you are more susceptible to COVID-19, continue to consider going out into public spaces less frequently.
- Get tested for COVID-19. Testing is free and available to everyone. Even without symptoms, testing of all
individuals can help identify those who are asymptomatic and may want to take extra precautions to protect
others in the community.
