CALL YOUR DOCTOR: If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider for medical advice.
*************************************
If you are sick with COVID-19 or think you might have it, follow the steps below to help protect other people in your home and community.

STAY HOME: People who are mildly ill with COVID-19 are able to recover at home. Do not leave, except to get medical care. Do not visit public areas.

STAY IN TOUCH WITH YOUR DOCTOR. Call before you get medical care. Be sure to get care if you feel worse or you think it is an emergency.

Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.

STAY AWAY FROM OTHERS: As much as possible, you should stay in a specific “sick room” and away from other people in your home. Use a separate bathroom, if available.

Although there have not been reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19, it is still recommended that people with the virus limit contact with animals until more information is known.

CALL AHEAD: If you have a medical appointment, call your doctor’s office or emergency department, and tell them you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the office protect themselves and other patients.

IF YOU ARE SICK: You should wear a facemask when you are around other people and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office.

If you are caring for others: If the person who is sick is not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then people who live in the home should stay in a different room. When caregivers enter the room of the sick person, they should wear a facemask. Visitors, other than caregivers, are not recommended.

COVER: Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.

DISPOSE: Throw used tissues in a lined trash can.

WASH HANDS: Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. This is especially important after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food.

HAND SANITIZER: If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, covering all surfaces of your hands and rubbing them together until they feel dry.

SOAP & WATER: Soap and water are the best option, especially if hands are visibly dirty.

AVOID TOUCHING: Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
don't share

DO NOT SHARE: Do not share dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels, or bedding with other people in your home.

WASH THOROUGHLY AFTER USE: After using these items, wash them thoroughly with soap and water or put in the dishwasher.

Clean high-touch surfaces in your isolation area (“sick room” and bathroom) every day; let a caregiver clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces in other areas of the home.

CLEAN & DISINFECT: If a caregiver or other person needs to clean and disinfect a sick person’s bedroom or bathroom, they should do so on an as-needed basis. The caregiver/other person should wear a mask and wait as long as possible after the sick person has used the bathroom.
High-touch surfaces include phones, remote controls, counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, keyboards, tablets, and bedside tables.

Clean and disinfect areas that may have blood, stool, or body fluids on them.

HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS: Clean the area or item with soap and water or another detergent if it is dirty. Then, use a household disinfectant.

Be sure to follow the instructions on the label to ensure safe and effective use of the product. Many products recommend keeping the surface wet for several minutes to ensure germs are killed. Many also recommend precautions such as wearing gloves and making sure you have good ventilation during use of the product.
