What to do if you feel ill or have symptoms of COVID-19?
If you feel ill, have a fever or dry cough please contact your healthcare provider by phone for directions. They will determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19 based on travel history, symptoms, and possible exposures.
If you are in a high-risk group: over 60, have a heart or lung condition, diabetic or are immunocompromised, please contact your healthcare provider for any special precautions you should take to protect yourself and those close to you from COVID-19.
Each of us has a vital role in stopping the spread and flattening the infection curve (slowing the rate of spread). The following precautions are shown to be effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19:
1. Social distancing.
2. Frequent handwashing with soap and water for 20 seconds.
3. Cover your cough or sneeze in your elbow.
4. Avoid touching your face, eyes, and mouth.
5. Frequently wash high touch surfaces.
6. Limit group gatherings to 10 people or less.
7. Stay home if you are ill.
