CDC now recommends you wear a mask in public where you can’t avoid being near people, like in grocery stores, pharmacies & healthcare settings https://bit.ly/2V8o5Y2. Remember though, your local authorities may have already issued a specific order re: masks. #StayHomeTexas CDC recomienda que use una máscara en público donde no pueda evitar estar cerca de personas, como en supermercados, farmacias y centros de salud https://bit.ly/2V8o5Y2. Es posible que sus autoridades locales ya hayan hecho obligatorio el uso de máscaras. #StayHomeTexas
The virus lives in tiny droplets in the lungs of people w/ COVID-19, even when they don’t show symptoms. We can breathe the same air as anyone within abt. 6 ft. of us. Staying farther apart from people during this time reduces the chance of breathing in the virus. #StayHomeTexas El virus vive en gotas en los pulmones de personas con COVID-19, y a veces no tienen síntomas. Puedes respirar el mismo aire que cualquiera a 6 pies de ti. Mantente más alejado de las personas durante este tiempo para reducir la posibilidad de respirar el virus. #StayHomeTexas
Toser y estornudar puede llevar gotas infectadas al aire, que pueden ser inhaladas por personas que estén a 6 pies de ti. Siempre tosa o estornude en pañuelos desechables o en el codo y lávese las manos para disminuir la propagación del virus. ¡Mantente sano! #StayHomeTexas
Kinder and 1st graders, don’t forget to pick up your packets. We are here until 9:00.

After it’s safe, someone from the vehicle can get out and pick up the packets. Thank you again for your patience through this process.
You can spread #COVID19 without knowing you have it. Whether you have symptoms or not, #StayHome. If you have to go out, wear a mask/bandana/scarf, regularly wash your hands, and stay 6 feet apart. We must stay #ApartTogether to slow coronavirus. https://tea.texas.gov/staywell
¿Sabía que lavarse las manos con agua y jabón elimina las moléculas de #Coronavirus evitando que el virus lo infecte a usted y a otros? Lo mismo es cierto cuando desinfecta superficies. La ciencia dice que funciona. https://bit.ly/2w7TGAJ # COVID19 #txed #StayWellTexas
