The current priority messages for the general public are:

  • Protect each other by wearing simple cloth face mask when out in public and stay at least 6 feet away from other people.
  • Continue to wash your hands and cover your coughs and sneezes.
  • 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 contact tracing to slow the spread of COVID-19. The more people answer the call, the more lives and jobs California saves.

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