COVID-19 Tips and Resources COVID-19 Tips and Resources COVID-19 has hit our Nevada LGBTQ+ community especially hard. Find resources and tips on how to stay healthy and safe. Our LGBTQ+ community has been hit hard by the virus and the economic downturn. We can beat this crisis, but we have to work together. Stay home except for essential needs. If you do go out, stay 6 feet away from others and wear a cloth mask. That is why we have partnered with Nevada Minority Health and Equity Coalition, the UNLV School of Public Health and our #ONECommunity partners to bring you a list of tips and resources to help you through these uncertain times. Stop the Spread Our LGBTQ+ community is particularly vulnerable to the virus because we’re more likely to have underlying health conditions. It’s up to us to stop the spread and save lives. Protect your family, your neighbors and frontline workers risking their lives to save ours by following recommendations from healthcare experts: Stay home. Connect with friends and family virtually; avoid people outside your household. Wear a cloth mask or face covering if you leave your home and wash it between uses. Maintain a safe distance of 6 feet away from others when outside your home. Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw it away. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. Reducing risk when you can’t social distance When social distancing isn’t an option for you, what do you do? Whether you are an essential worker, a person who uses public transportation, or someone who lives with roommates or a multigenerational household, it’s important to take as many extra precautions as possible. By taking extra steps to protect yourself, you help keep your household, and the whole community, safe from an outbreak.
