A Guide to the Coronavirus

CDC, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is aggressively responding to the outbreak of the Coronavirus, or COVID-19 virus. The risk for the general American public of getting COVID-19 in the U.S. is currently low. CDC believes at this time that symptoms of COVID-19 may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure.

You can help stop COVID-19 by knowing the signs and symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or acute respiratory illness

-       Call ahead before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room to advise them of your symptoms

Simple things to do to keep yourself and others healthy:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. Lather the soap onto the back of your hands, in between your fingers and under your nails. Rinse your hands under clean running warm water. Dry your hands with a clean dry towel or let them air dry (wet hands easily transfer viruses).
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, especially with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home when you are sick. Do not come to work until you are free of fever (100.4 degrees F or greater using an oral thermometer), signs of a fever and any other symptoms for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medicines. Employees should notify their supervisor of their illness and stay home.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Use hand sanitizer that contains 60%-95% alcohol.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • CDC recommends getting a flu vaccine since it is still currently flu and respiratory disease season.

The virus is spread:

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet)
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
  • It may be possible to get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes. This is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
