"The longer we study this virus, the better we have come to understand how it spreads. The absolute best way to protect yourself and others is to wear a mask in public and maintain at least six feet in distance from the nearest person," said Cappelli. "These simple steps dramatically reduce the virus’ ability to spread. If we continue to take these painless, preventative steps, we can save lives and lessen the impact coronavirus has on our community moving forward.”
