Recommendations to protect against COVID-19.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the best way to protect your health while visiting any polling place is to use hand sanitizer and wash your hands as soon as possible. Frequent and thorough hand washing remains the most effective protection against Coronavirus infection, according to the CDC.
Voters should use antibacterial hand sanitizer before and after their voting session and wash hands after voting, regardless of what method of voting is used.
