Here are a few things you can do to Stop the Spread!
Covid-19 is rapidly spreading and has already been declared as a public health emergency of international concern by WHO. It is our responsibility as well as in our best interest to try and stop the virus from spreading.

Avoid Leaving the House for Non-essential Work

The stroll in the park or the visit to a friend’s house can wait. Go out only for essentials and medical purposes.

A face mask that covers your mouth, nose and chin is ideal. Wear it when you go out of the house or indoors too if you have sick people at home.

Cover Your Mouth While Coughing and Sneezing

Covid-19 spreads rapidly through droplets released from the mouth while coughing and sneezing or even talking. Cover your mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw used tissues in the trash.


Check if You Can Work From Home

Working from home can prevent too many people from gathering together at workplaces and also reduce crowding on public transport. Do check with your employer if you have the option to work from home.

Frequently Asked Questions
Check for home delivery options wherever possible. Keep adequate supplies of prescription medicines at home. If you still need to go out for essentials, have just one member of the house go out to the stores when necessary. Maintain social distancing inside stores and wear a mask. Look for drive-through or pick-up options.
Depending on the rate of spread, the regulations around public gatherings are subject to change. Please check what is allowed and what is not in the LA county here and Orange County here.
Make sure you have the phone numbers of your doctor’s office, local urgent care, and the emergency room. Put up important numbers in a place where everyone can see them, such as on the fridge. If you don’t have a healthcare provider, contact the County information line (211) to find a provider near you.
