TAKING PRECAUTIONS AND WHAT TO DO IF YOU THINK YOU’RE SICK

We urge you to take every precaution to keep yourself and those around you healthy and safe.  The following precautions are recommended:

  • Wash your hands often
  • 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.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Stay home if you’re feeling sick, exhibiting any symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath), or taking care of someone who is sick.

 

If you think you are sick, the CDC recommends you contact your healthcare provider before seeking medical care.

Many state and local governments around the country are recommending additional precautions such as avoiding large gatherings or certain activities outside the home. We strongly recommend you adhere to all government recommendations to keep our communities safe and improve your chances of avoiding COVID-19.
