 As Kentuckians began to venture out more and more, it is important that we continue to

protect ourselves by practicing everyday preventive measures. In general, the longer you interact

with someone the greater your chances of becoming infected with COVID-19. Keeping hand

sanitizer, a face mask, and tissues readily available plus maintaining a physical distance of at

least 6 feet are still a must. Although there is no way to ensure zero risk of infection, the graphic

below provides insight on things you should consider before leaving your home. Additional

guidance for using restaurants, gyms, nail salons, libraries, parks, or attending cookouts can be

found on the Centers for Disease Control website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-
