COVID-19 Risk Index

Besides practicing basic preventive measures like handwashing, wearing a face covering, and social distancing, you can minimize your risk for getting COVID-19 by AVOIDING:

• Being in an enclosed space
• Being in a crowd or being unable to physically distance yourself from others
• Having longer interactions with people outside your household
• Being around forceful exhalations, like coughing, yelling, or singing

“When you’re thinking about places to go, things you’re doing, think about those four criteria and how you can minimize those four to minimize your risk of COVID,” Alaska Chief Medical Officer Dr. Anne Zink said during a COVID-19 press conference Tuesday.
