60 Second Audio Transcript - You Are Crucial

(Sound effects: music in the background)

Voiceover: Heard the good news about COVID-19 vaccines? They’re coming, but you can do a lot more than just wait.

See, you have the power to help slow the spread. Actually, you could be a real difference maker—and protect your family and loved ones too. Here’s how:

Watch your distance. Stay at least 6 feet away from folks you don’t live with – and it’s risky to be indoors with them too, no matter how far apart you are. And of course, avoid crowds.

Also, wear a mask. CDC reports that masks protect both the person wearing them and the folks around them from particles that carry the virus.

And wash your hands. Using soap and water for 20 seconds. And do it frequently.

Watch your distance, Wear a mask, and Wash your hands—simple, effective, and along with vaccines, they’re how you can make a big difference.

Announcer voiceover: Learn more about vaccines at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus. Brought to you by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
