Social Distance, Enhance Cleaning, Cover Face, Wash Hands, Stay Home

Five Core Actions

This phased plan presents a pathway for reopening that relies on the Five Core Actions we must all consistently take to reduce the spread of COVID-19. These core actions reduce individual and community risk. We will only be able to safely maintain our reopening efforts if all of us commit to maintaining these Five Core Actions.

The Five Core Actions are:

  • Maintain Social Distancing
  • Enhance Cleaning
  • Cover Your Face
  • Wash Your Hands
  • Stay Home
