LET’S KEEP IT UP
LET’S #MASKUP

As some of the most trusted hospitals in the nation we know that continuing to take precautionary measures is tough. But, here’s what we also know: The science has not changed. Masks slow the spread of COVID-19. Diligently washing our hands stops its transmission. And staying 6 feet apart from those we don’t live with makes it harder for the disease to spread too.

WE CAN, AND NEED TO, DO THIS. TO END THIS.

WE CAN,
AND NEED
TO, DO THIS.
TO END THIS.

MASK UP

Wearing face masks is something that we can do every day to help prevent the spread of the virus. You should always wear one when you go out to public places and anytime you’re around people who do not live in your household.

HOW TO WEAR A MASK:
  • It should cover your mouth and nose
  • It should be snug but comfortable against the sides of your face
  • It should be secured with ties or ear loops
  • It should be made with multiple layers of material
  • It must allow you to breathe without restriction
  • Disposable masks should be thrown away after each use

WASH UP

Keeping our hands clean is one of the easiest and most important things we can do to stay healthy and help limit the spread of COVID-19. The CDC recommends washing your hands with soap and water whenever you can. However, if soap and water are not available, an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol should be used.

WHEN TO WASH YOUR HANDS:
  • After you have been in public and touched a surface that is frequently touched by others (like door handles, shopping carts, electronic cash registers/screens, etc.)
  • Before and after touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  • When entering or exiting the home
  • After blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing
  • Before, during and after you prepare and eat food
  • Before and after contact with an ill person
  • After using the toilet or changing diapers
  • Before and after treating a cut, sore or wound
  • After touching animals or animal waste
  • After touching garbage, body fluids, or anytime you have doubt if your hands are clean

6 FEET AND UP

We understand that you want to spend time with your extended family and friends. We are all longing for more in-person interaction and fewer video calls. But we must do it safely, and that means keeping some space between us.

Coronavirus spreads mainly among people who are in close contact with each other for prolonged periods of time. Since people can spread the virus before they begin to feel sick, it is important to keep at least 6 feet away from others (physical distancing) as much as possible. It also means avoiding large gatherings (social distancing), which we know can be especially tough during the holidays. But by doing this now, we hope we can all get back to getting together with family soon.

YOU HAVE OUR COMMITMENT.
NOW WE NEED YOURS.

As America’s hospitals working to protect our communities, we ask each and every one of you to please help us slow the spread of COVID-19. We need your help to reduce the number of hospitalizations related to COVID-19. We need your help to keep our essential workers safe. We need you to help us all.
