“Public health contact tracing has shown the primary source of COVID-19 transmission continues to be through socializing with others – whether in your home or less controlled settings. That is why we all need to take a step back from our social interactions, see fewer people and travel less right now. We have it in our control to push our curve back down. You can make a difference by making safe choices in how you spend time with others.”
