Navigating COVID-19: The Three Cs and Three Ws

Vaccinations are the best way to prevent COVID-19. But even if you have received a vaccine there are additional steps you can take to be safe.

Jorge Salinas, MD, walks us through what we should continue avoiding (the Three Cs) and what we should continue doing (the Three Ws) as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

Avoid the Three Cs:

  • Closed spaces with poor ventilation
  • Crowded places
  • Close contact situations

The Three Ws:

  • Wear your mask (or shield)
  • Watch your distance
  • Wash your hands

Solidarity matters

Salinas explains why it will take all of us to end the COVID-19 pandemic. His motivation for wearing his face mask, keeping his distance, and practicing good hand hygiene? Humility, kindness, and community. He's in. Are you?
