Staying healthy indoors

As the season changes, cooler temperatures mean more time indoors. The risk from COVID-19 increases with indoor gatherings compared to outdoors, but there are ways to reduce the spread and stay healthy. Read this article from Seattle and King County Public Health to learn more about COVID-19 risks indoors and what to do about it.

A combination of strategies used together will most effectively reduce the risk from COVID-19. These steps include wearing a mask that fits well, staying at least 6 feet away from others, improving ventilation, avoiding crowded places, limiting interactions with others outside the home, and, practicing good hygiene and environmental cleaning.  

You can find more information on indoor air and reducing COVID-19 risk at the EPA Indoor Air and Coronavirus website.
