Business owners, employees, and patrons are urged to follow aggressive precautionary actions that will reduce the risk of infection and limit the spread of COVID-19 from other areas.

According to the Calvert County Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the COVID-19 virus through the following prevention measures:

  • Avoid large gatherings, both public and private.
  • Avoid going into public places as much as possible.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. Use a hand sanitizer if soap and water are not readily available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Protect others by staying home if you are sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze.
  • Throw used tissues in the trash and immediately wash your hands or use a hand sanitizer.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily, including doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.

The county continues to share the latest updates surrounding Calvert County’s response to COVID-19 through a virtual resource center on its website, including any precautionary measures, guidance, and closures at www.CalvertCountyMd.gov/Coronavirus.
