Community Mitigation Strategies

Community mitigation activities are actions that people and communities can take to slow the spread of infectious diseases. Community mitigation is especially important before a vaccine or drug becomes widely available.

Mitigation strategies include

  • Personal protective measures (e.g., handwashing, cough etiquette, and face coverings) that persons can use at home or while in community settings
  • Social distancing (e.g., maintaining physical distance between persons in community settings and staying at home)
  • Environmental surface cleaning at home and in community settings, such as schools or workplaces.
