According to the Center for Disease Control, COVID-19 can be passed from person to person similarly to the common cold or flu. When a person coughs or sneezes, small respiratory droplets can transfer from person to person.
We are encouraging everyone to stay home as much as possible and practice good hygiene. Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching your face—including eyes, nose and mouth. Avoid congregating and meeting in groups by staying six feet away from others at all times, and follow all state and federal COVID-19 regulations. Normal day to day healthy practices such as eating a well-balanced diet, exercising and getting enough sleep are always a good idea.
Stay calm and keep yourself and your family at home. If you have COVID-19 symptoms such as a cough or fever, contact your health provider. If emergency warning signs occur, outlined by the CDC as trouble breathing, persistent pain or chest pressure, confusion or blue lips or face, seek medical assistance immediately. Having a fever does not warrant emergency medical assistance.
The CDC now recommends everyone to wear a face covering when going out or leaving the house. Face coverings can be sewn or constructed with a bandanna or other fabric that is available. According to the CDC, "the cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders."
