What can you do to help prevent COVID-19?
Know the symptoms:
- Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
- Shortness of breath
- Fever (any temperature over 100.4)
- Muscle pain
- Sore throat
- New loss of taste or smell
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Get tested if you are exposed to COVID-19, consult with your medical provider, and self-quarantine for 7-14 days as recommended by the CDC and/or your medical provider
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then dispose of tissue in the trash. If a tissue is not available, then cough or sneeze into your elbow. Avoid coughing into your hands as that will spread germs
- Use available hand sanitizer when not able to wash hands with soap and water
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
- Avoid touching your face unless your hands are clean
