COVID-19 spreads mostly through close contact between people, but it is possible for people to be infected by touching surfaces or objects covered with germs. Protect yourself and others from COVID-19:

• Wear a mask with multiple layers that fits snugly against your face.
• Wash hands often for 20 seconds using soap or use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
• Clean high touch surfaces using soap and water or detergent.

If you have had an exposure to a person with COVID-19 before you’ve been fully vaccinated, you should quarantine and get tested as recommended. To avoid the risk of exposing vaccinators and other people to the virus, you should also reschedule your COVID-19 vaccine appointment until after your quarantine period ends. If you are diagnosed with or have symptoms of COVID-19, you should wait to get vaccinated after you recover. For more information about what to do after an exposure to COVID-19, visit: http://ow.ly/tnFf50ErwIh.

It's Black Maternal Health Week! #BMHW21 is an opportunity to consider solutions to the black maternal health crisis without fear, blame, or shame. #BlackMamasMatter #ListenToBlackWomen for more information follow @BlkMamasMatter and visit: https://blackmamasmatter.org

Did you know that Black women are most at risk for poor maternal health outcomes.

Not all women face the same risks during pregnancy and childbirth. Black women in the United States are between 3 and 4 times more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than White women.

Join the conversation this week as we help raise awareness for the health and well-being of black women and maternal health! #BMHW21 #PortsmouthHD
