COVID-19 hasn’t gone anywhere. Cases are rising rapidly in many parts of the U.S., including California. This pandemic is not over. But, if we all work together and do our part, it can be. Here’s what you can do to help protect yourself and others:
• Wear a mask over your mouth AND nose when in public.
• Stay home when you can.
• Stay at least 6 feet apart from others and avoid crowds.
• Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.

"As public health professionals serving a diverse population of pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women, new parents, and their families, we at WIC acknowledge that racism is a public health crisis that directly affects our work and the families we serve.
With this in mind, we have been taking a hard look at our organization—our hiring practices, our staff mentoring and training, our community referrals—and identifying ways we can promote health and racial equity."
