Unite to Stop the Spread

1. Get your COVID-19 vaccine

Get your COVID-19 vaccine to protect yourself and others from getting sick. Guidance for fully vaccinated people.

2. Wear a face mask in public

All Georgia residents and visitors are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings while outside their home or place of residence. Covering your nose and mouth greatly reduces your chances of spreading the virus and also provides some protection for you. Use face coverings if you'll be indoors or around other people where social distancing is difficult to maintain. CDC guidance on cloth face coverings.

3. Wash your hands frequently

Washing your hands with regular soap and water for at least 20 seconds is effective in stopping the spread of COVID-19. If soap and water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer liberally. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. More handwashing tips.

4. Move at least 6 feet away from others

COVID-19 can spread among people who are in close contact for a prolonged period of time. Avoid public spaces where close contact with others may occur. If you are around other people, stay at least 6 feet away from them. CDC guidance on social distancing.

5. Stay at home as much as possible

To help protect the health of Georgia’s residents and businesses, stay home as much as you can and limit social interaction with people outside your household. Self-quarantine if you test positive for COVID-19 or were exposed to someone with COVID-19. If you leave your home, follow social physical distancing, sanitation, and public health safety measures.
