Since the emergence of COVID-19 in 2020, there have been many different forms of prevention that have been used to stop the spread of transmission and infection. However, there are only a few true ways that have been deemed effective.

One of the most important would be to wash your hands. This is an essential part of basic hygiene that a lot of people did not even take seriously until the pandemic became the threat it has been now for the past year. Along with hand-washing comes wearing a mask, which is also one of the most helpful ways to stop the spread because it helps prevent you from getting others sick and vice-versa.

Another extremely effective method is to get the COVID-19 vaccine, which will provide you with almost no chance of infection with a 95 percent efficacy. However, if you are unfortunately not getting the vaccine you should try your best to be socially distant when feeling under the weather and avoid big crowds until you are not sick anymore.
