There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way for all Chicagoans to protect themselves and others from COVID-19 is to stay home as much as possible and practice good hand hygiene and social distancing when going out in public.

Without social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19, the number of cases can increase so quickly that hospitals will not have nearly enough beds and equipment to care for all patients. Together, we can flatten the curve and help keep our family, friends, neighbors, and those most vulnerable safe.
