Personal Practices to Prevent Infection

Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19 spreads primarily person-to-person from respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks or breathes.  There currently is no vaccine and the best way to prevent illness is to avoid exposure.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have issued international guidelines for staying healthy during COVID.  Go to read their Prevention Tips and Info on Staying Healthy, which in include the following:

  • Wash your hands often.
    Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds after being in public, blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.  If no soap, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.  Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact.
    Maintain a distance of 6 feet (2 arm lengths) from other people outside the household, and especially avoid contact with those who are ill (even at home).
  • Cover your mouth and nose.
    Wear a cloth face covering that covers the mouth and nose whenever you go out in public and especially to stores or other indoor places.  Check out this helpful article in the Wall Street Journal for guidelines on face coveringsthis one in the Seattle Times regarding masks while exercising.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.
    Help limit spread by covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, throwing tissues in the trash and immediately washing your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect regularly.
    Use detergent or soap and water, followed by household disinfectant on dirty or frequently touched surfaces.  
  • Monitor your health.
    Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath of other symptoms, especially after being in public settings or otherwise close proximity with others outside the home.

Staying Home and Going Out Safely

As of June 19, King County has officially entered Phase Two of the Statewide Safe Start reopening plan, as announced by Governor Inslee on May 29.  The full statewide guide for Safe Start is available on the Coronavirus Guide.

Generally, it is still safest to stay at home and limit contact with others, however with Phase Two, the state and county recommendations allow for limited social gatherings with five or fewer people outside of your household.  They also allow people to go back to restaurants, retailers and other businesses, at reduced capacity. 

It is still required that all people and businesses follow social distancing, regular handwashing, wearing cloth face coverings and otherwise following prevention practices.

More information about the current phase of Safe Start and the specific details of the recommendations in King County available at the Public Health site.
