With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we are all continuing to take steps to stay healthy. The CDC recommends that people get vaccinated, protect themselves by wearing a mask indoors if in areas with a high COVID-19 community level, avoid crowded and poorly ventilated indoor spaces, wash hands often, and stay 6 feet apart. But studies suggest that there are many other behaviors (such as sleeping and eating habits) and actions (such as being vaccinated against other diseases) that you can take to reduce your risk of getting COVID-19 and of needing hospitalization. Sign in for our full answer and the details.
ConsumerLab is working to continually bring you the latest information to answer important related questions about the virus, such as how to find the best masks, face shields, pulse oximeters, and air purifiers and which series of vaccines appear to be most protective.
Note: The CDC provides tips for coping with stress during the pandemic and offers a Disaster Distress Helpline (1-800-985-5990) for individuals who need immediate help. The helpline is available for both English and Spanish speakers.
