COVID-19

3/19/2020

COVID-19
Recommendations from the Dept. of Health:
1. Alternative to hand sanitizer: soap and water
Follow these five steps every time.
Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
2. Alternative to disinfecting wipes: 4 teaspoons of bleach to 1 quart of water
 

Main symptoms of COVID-19:


Dry Cough


Fever


Runny Nose


Other symptoms that may be present are body aches, chills, and sore throat.


If you have any of the symptoms please do the following:



    • 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. Any shortness of breathe needs medical attention.

    • Avoid public transportation: 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.

    • Limit contact with pets & animals: You should restrict contact with pets and other animals, just like you would around other people.


      • 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.

      • When possible, have another member of your household care for your animals while you are sick with COVID-19. If you must care for your pet or be around animals while you are sick, wash your hands before and after you interact with them.




    • 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.
