How People Can Protect Themselves


 

Every person has a role to play. Protecting yourself and your family comes down to common sense: 

  • Staying home except for essential needs/activities.

  • Practicing social distancing.

  • Washing hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds.

  • Avoiding touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Covering a cough or sneeze with your sleeve, or disposable tissue. Wash your hands afterward.

  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.

  • Staying away from work, school or other people if you become sick with respiratory symptoms like fever and cough.

  • Following guidance from public health officials.

 

What to Do if You Think You're Sick
Call ahead: If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough or shortness of breath) and may have had contact with a person with COVID-19, or recently traveled to countries with apparent community spread, call your health care provider before seeking medical care so that appropriate precautions can be taken.
