Veterans and employees continue to use the “3Ws” to prevent infection and stop the spread of COVID-19:
Wear a mask covering your nose and mouth,
Watch your distance (maintain 6 feet or more from others) and
Wash your hands often with warm water and soap or sanitizer.
COVID-19 spreads easily between individuals who are in close contact with one another (within six feet) through respiratory droplets and airborne particles produced when an infected person breathes, coughs, sings, sneezes, or talks. To a lesser extent, COVID-19 spreads through contact with contaminated surfaces. Good hand hygiene, physical distancing, virtual health care, screening at facility entrances, and the use universal source control have become standard COVID-19 prevention practices at VHA facilities.
