Your Actions Save Lives
Protect yourself, family, friends and your community by following these prevention measures:
Get vaccinated when it's your turn. Californians age 16+ are eligible to make an appointment.
If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches), call your health care provider.
If you believe you have been exposed, get tested. Free, confidential testing is available statewide.
Keep gatherings small and outdoors and follow state and local public health guidance.
Wear a mask. Regardless of vaccination status, face coverings
are required indoors with a few exceptions. Read the latest face covering guidance.
Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Delay non-essential travel outside of California until you are fully vaccinated. Follow California's travel advisory.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick and stay home from work and school if you feel ill.
Add your phone to the fight by signing up for COVID-19 exposure notifications from CA Notify.
Answer the call or text if a contact tracer from the CA COVID Team or your local health department tries to connect.
