Know Your Ws

Wear. Wait. Wash. As North Carolina eases some COVID-19 restrictions, the NC Department of Health and Human Services is asking people to remember these three things to continue to slow the spread of COVID-19 and flatten the curve.

If you leave home, practice your Ws: Wear, Wait, Wash

· Wear a cloth face covering if you will be with other people.

· Wait six feet apart. Avoid close contact.

· Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer.

What to Know About Cloth Face Coverings

Following CDC guidance, Executive Order 138 recommends that people wear a cloth face covering when they leave their house and may be less than six feet from other people who are not family or household members. Covering your face is about helping others and being a good neighbor and community member.
