Preventing viral respiratory infections. Protect yourself from getting sick.
COVID-19 is spread between people who are in close contact with each other and through respiratory droplets. This is very similar to how seasonal flu is spread. Taking everyday preventive actions to help stop the spread of germs will help prevent the spread of COVID-19, too.

  • wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • stay home while you are sick
  • avoid close contact with others
  • cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing
  • clean and disinfect objects and surfaces
  • wear a mask that covers mouth and nose when in public places

If you have further questions, please call the Maryland hotline (available 24/7) at 2-1-1 and select option 2. You may also contact the Worcester County Health Department's COVID-19 hotline during health department business hours (8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday) at 410-632-1100 option #8.
