Wear a mask when away from your home.
Stay 6 feet or more away from people who are not members of your household, outdoors or indoors, even when everyone is wearing masks.
Limit your time indoors near other people who are not members of your household to no more than a cumulative 15 minutes, even when everyone is wearing masks.
For a given number of people, larger indoor spaces are safer than smaller ones. Spaces well ventilated with outdoor air are safer than poorly ventilated ones.
Frequent and good hand washing is important, as described by How to wash your hands properly. Gloves are not “better”, even for employees. For an interesting video demonstration, watch Effective Hand Washing (black ink on gloves). When you cannot wash your hands, use hand sanitizer (see video on how to make your own).
When out, do not touch your face (particularly when wearing a mask or gloves).
