Quiz: Are You at Risk for COVID-19?

Your Results: Low

Your answers indicate you’re at low risk for catching COVID-19, but please continue to practice safe habits to help flatten the curve (and protect your own immune system) by washing your hands for at least 20 seconds whenever needed; avoiding touching your face; staying at home as much as you can; and practicing social distancing when you must go out for essentials (that means steering clear of large crowds and staying at least 6 feet from anyone you don’t live with). Some states like New York now require everyone to wear a face mask when they’re out in public and can’t easily maintain social distance. You may want to consider doing so, too.

Wondering if you're at higher risk for a severe infection if you do contract COVID-19? We've got a quiz for that, too.

And odds are, you’re among them. That means it’s still crucial to remain vigilant about protecting yourself. Step one? Really understanding what your risk of contracting the virus in the first place.
