Infected No Symptoms
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
Coughing & sneezing can send tiny infected droplets into the air which can be inhaled by anyone w/in 6 feet. Cough & sneeze into your elbow to lessen the risk.
Toser y estornudar puede enviar pequeñas gotitas infectadas al aire que pueden ser inhaladas por cualquier a de 6 pies de distancia. Tosa y estornude en su codo para disminuir el riesgo.
People with no symptoms have the potential to unknowingly spread COVID-19! That’s why it’s best for everyone in your family to stay at home and away from others as much as possible until instructed otherwise from state and local officials. #StayHomeTexas
¡Las personas sin síntomas tienen el potencial de propagar COVID-19 sin saberlo! Por eso lo mejor para todos en su familia es quedarse en casa y lejos de los demás tanto como sea posible hasta que los funcionarios estatales y locales le indiquen lo contrario. #StayHomeTexas
Don’t Go Viral
No te Vuelvas Viral
#COVID19 lives on droplets in the lungs of people with the virus, even if they don’t have symptoms. When infected people breathe, the virus enters the air. If you can’t #StayHome, wear a mask/scarf/bandana, stay 6 feet apart, and wash your hands. #DontGoViral
#COVID19 vive de gotas en los pulmones de las personas con el virus incluso si no tienen síntomas. Cuando las personas contagiadas respiran, el virus entra al aire.Si no puedes quedarte en casa #StayHome, use una bufanda/pañuelo, manténgase a 6 pies de distancia y lávese las manos

COVID-19 – Stay Home When Sick
