Symptoms of COVID-19
- Fever of 100 degrees or more
- Shortness of breath
Be sure to tell your medical provider if you, or someone you are in close contact with, have traveled to a high-risk area or have been on a cruise in the last 30 days.
COVID-19 symptoms may not appear for 2-14 days after exposure.
If you have mild symptoms, stay home and limit your exposure to others. Notify your healthcare provider and follow their recommendations.
If you begin to experience symptoms that are life threatening, call 911 immediately.
The same habits that help prevent the spread of the flu and common cold are the best way to help prevent the spread of novel coronavirus, too. Wash your hands, don’t touch your face and cover your sneeze or cough with a tissue or elbow.
The virus is believed to spread person-to-person, as close as six feet. Avoid close proximity with anyone who is sick.
Keep Hands Clean
The best way to stop germs from spreading from one person to another is frequent hand washing. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer when you can’t wash.
Try not to touch your face, eyes, nose or mouth if your hands aren’t freshly washed.
Have a Cough or Cold?
Cough or sneeze into a clean tissue or use your elbow. Never use your hands.
Keep Surfaces Clean
Clean and disinfect frequently touched items and surfaces such as cell phones, toys, countertops and bathroom surfaces.
If You’re Sick
If you are sick, stay home. Children should stay home from school and other activities if they show signs of sickness.
