To practice social or physical distancing, stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms length) from other people who are not from your household in both indoor and outdoor spaces. Social or physical distancing should be practiced in combination with other everyday preventive actions to reduce the spread of COVID-19. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/social-distancing.html
  18. 18. Tips for Social/Physical Distancing ● Know Before You Go: Before going out, know and follow the guidance from local public health authorities where you live. ● Prepare for Transportation: Consider social distancing options to travel safely when running errands or commuting to and from work ● Limit Contact When Running Errands: Only visit stores selling essentials when you absolutely need to, and stay at least 6 feet away from others who are not from your household while shopping and in lines. If possible, use drive-thru, curbside pick-up, or delivery services to limit face-to-face contact with others.
  19. 19. Continued... ● Choose Safe Social Activities: Stay connected by calling, using video chat, and social media. If meeting others in person (e.g., at small outdoor gatherings, yard or driveway gathering with a small group of friends or family members), stay at least 6 feet from others not in household. ● Keep Distance at Events and Gatherings: Try to avoid crowded places where it may be difficult to stay at least 6 feet away from others. Pay attention to any physical guides, such as tape markings on floors or signs on walls, directing attendees to physically distance. Allow other people 6 feet of space when you pass by them in both indoor and outdoor settings. ● Stay Distanced While Being Active: Consider going for a walk, bike ride, or wheelchair roll in your neighborhood or in another safe location where you can maintain at least 6 feet of distance. If you decide to visit a nearby park, trail, or recreational facility, consider how many other people might be there and choose a location where it will be possible to stay physically distanced.
  20. 20. IV. PPE Identification & Use ● PPE stands for personal protective equipment and is specialized clothing or equipment worn by an employee for protection against infectious materials ● Types of PPE: ○ Gloves -- protect hands ○ Gowns -- protect skin/clothing ○ Masks -- protect nose/mouth ○ Goggles -- protect eyes ○ Face shields -- protect face, mouth, nose, and eyes

Put on facemask. ○ Should be extended under your chin and both your mouth and nose should be protected. Ties should be secured on crown of head (top tie) and base of neck (bottom tie). If mask has loops, hook them appropriately around your ears. 5. Put on face shield or goggles. ○ Face shields provide full face coverage. Goggles also provide excellent protection for eyes, but fogging is common. 6. Put on gloves. Gloves should cover the cuff (wrist) of gown.
