We all need to take these steps.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds – especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
The CDC recommends that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
Stay home as much as you can. If you must leave your home, the CDC recommends staying at least six feet from people who are not from your household, in both indoor and outdoor spaces.
For more information on what you can do to protect yourself, your loved ones and your community from COVID-19, see the CDC's prevention tips. Remember, prevention saves lives.View CDC Guidelines
With mild symptoms, such as low fever or cough, you should stay home, get rest, stay hydrated and see a doctor online.
With moderate symptoms, such as fever and shortness of breath, see your primary care physician or go to an urgent care.
With severe symptoms, such as trouble breathing, pain or pressure in the chest, confusion, inability to stay awake or bluish lips, call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.
If you are having a serious medical emergency, do not hesitate to call 911 or go to your closest ER. Seeking appropriate medical attention for all serious illnesses and injuries is more important than ever.
Be assured that COVID-19 patients are treated in separate areas from non-COVID-19 patients.
Your health is our main priority. Older adults and those with chronic conditions such as asthma, heart conditions and hypertension, among others, are at higher risk for a severe complication from COVID-19.
