Keeping yourself and those around you safe from COVID-19

How Can I Protect Myself And Others?

Follow these 5 steps to stay AWARE during COVID-19, commonly known as the coronavirus disease, and help prevent this illness from spreading.

Keep at least 6 feet between you and others when possible. Avoid crowds and close contact with people who are sick.

Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If you don’t have soap and water, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Wash your hands often, especially after leaving the bathroom, before eating and after touching your face.

Call your doctor if you have a fever, cough or shortness of breath BEFORE showing up at a primary care office, urgent care center or emergency department. Your doctor may want you to stay home instead of potentially infecting others. If you do call 911 in an emergency, mention your symptoms.

If you have a fever, cough or shortness of breath and you DON'T feel you need immediate medical attention, we recommend staying home. Although 80% of those infected have mild symptoms similar to the common cold, remaining at home can help prevent the spread of the disease. Working from home, if you have the option, is also recommended. 

Cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue rather than into the air or your hands. 

Preventing the Spread

If you, a household member, intimate partner and or caregiver come in contact with COVID-19, you may need to take precautions to prevent the spread of the disease. These may include social distancing or a self-quarantine. To learn more about these preventative measures, please visit the CDC website for additional information.

What is the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)?

The novel coronavirus causes COVID-19, a respiratory illness that originated in Wuhan, China in December 2019. About 80% of people with COVID-19 experience a mild respiratory illness. The most common symptoms are cough, shortness of breath and fever.
