The current priority messages for the general public are:

  • Your actions are saving lives. Staying home and physical distancing is working.
  • Our collective efforts will help to prevent and slow the spread. New infections may continue to occur until there is a vaccine and a majority of people around the world get vaccinated. Until then, we can minimize new outbreaks if we know where and when they happen as quickly as possible. This requires both regular testing and contract tracing.
  • The single best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is by staying home. If you do go out for essential needs, stay at least 6 feet away from other people.

The most up-to-date information about COVID-19 and best practices on preventing its spread can be read on covid19.ca.gov. Read the latest news about COVID-19.
