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
Before social distancing, each person with #COVID19 spread the virus to 2.5 more people. At that pace, most would get it, and many more people would die. But we can slow the spread. That’s why we all #StayHome. #ApartTogether we slow coronavirus.
Antes del distanciamiento social, cada persona con #COVID19 transmitió el virus a 2.5 personas.A ese ritmo, muchas personas se contagiarían, y muchas personas morirían.Pero podemos retrasar la propagación.Por eso todos quedemonos en casa y paremos el Coronavirus.#ApartTogether

Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds and disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs and countertops. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth, and cover a cough or sneeze with your elbow. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 – a fever, dry cough, or shortness of breath, call your doctor.
