All your efforts are for naught if you don’t cover your face properly. Wash hands before putting on your mask, and ensure that it covers your nose and mouth. Secure the mask so that it fits snugly without hampering your breathing. When wearing a mask, don’t touch your face or rub your eyes. For more information on mask wearing, check out the CDC’s recommendations.
Self-Isolate If Necessary
People returning home to live with parents, as well as those who have been traveling domestically or abroad, may need to self-isolate for 14 days upon their return, depending on state or local government requirements. Until you are sure you’re not infected with COVID-19, keep your distance from people in your household—especially those at higher risk for complications from the virus. Postpone any social engagements with folks outside your household until after the 14-day self-isolation period.

Keep this advice in mind when arranging to see friends and family.
