Remember that the best thing you can do in the face of COVID-19 is to take precautions to protect yourself, your family, and your community:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; dry hands with a clean towel or air dry hands.
  • Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water are unavailable.
  • Cover your mouth with a tissue or sleeve when sneezing or coughing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • Clean “high-touch” surfaces daily. These include counters, tabletops, doorknobs, light switches, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, desks, and tablets.




Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure and include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath / Difficulty breathing
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of taste or smell

Before going to you doctor, urgent care or hospital, call ahead and let them know what symptoms you are having. 

Protect yourself and others from COVID-19 and other communicable diseases by following these recommendations:

The CDC recommends that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings when around people outside of their household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Cloth face coverings may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others. Cloth face coverings are most likely to reduce the spread of COVID-19 when they are widely used by people in public settings. Cloth face coverings should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

Recommended Preparations

In order to prevent the spread of infection, individuals who have COVID-19 or who have had known exposure to COVID-19 are being asked to stay home for two weeks. If you find yourself in that situation, consider what you will want to have on-hand:

  • Thermometer
  • Prescription medication
  • Over-the-counter medicine, including acetaminophen and ibuprofen
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Toilet paper
  • Alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Vitamins
  • Soap and other toiletries
  • Household cleaning supplies, including products that kill germs
  • Laundry detergent
  • Tissues, paper towels
  • Food and beverages
  • Pet supplies
  • Any other essential items you would need for 14 days
