As the Coronavirus continues to spread, we want to ease your fears by providing you with up-to-date, accurate information.
How to prevent the spread of COVID-19
Wash Hands often for 20 seconds and encourage others to do the same.
If no soap is available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue away or use your elbow.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes (ie: tables, countertops, light switches, doorknobs, cabinet handles, buttons).
Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Stay at least 6 feet away from anyone showing obvious symptoms. Avoid traveling to areas where the virus is spreading rapidly.
Stay home when you are sick.
Launder items including washable plush toys using the warmest water setting and dry items completely.
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms can range from mild to severe. The most common are fever, cough, and shortness of breath. There also may be others, such as sore throat, runny nose, and some people may have no symptoms at all.
How long can a person be contagious?
The incubation period can be up to 14 days. This is the time from when someone catches a virus until the time they start to feel sick. Some people may be contagious even before they show symptoms. People should be considered contagious until their symptoms are gone and have had at least 24 hours without fever, without taking fever medicine.
Do I need to wear a face mask?
Yes, the CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Click here for more information from the CDC on how to wear a cloth facing covering and make your own at home.
