COVID-19 is thought to spread via respiratory droplet transmission. It can transmit when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
Lather up with soap and warm, running water. Be sure to scrub for 20 seconds, then rinse.
Cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue when you cough or sneeze, throw it in the trash and wash your hands.
Stay away from large public gatherings. When you do need to be around others, ensure a safe distance of at least 6 feet.
If you have recently returned from an affected area, self-isolate. Stay indoors and avoid contact with other people for at least 14 days.
If you feel sick with fever, cough or have difficulty breathing, contact your primary care provider, who will assess your symptoms and exposure to determine if a COVID-19 test is appropriate.
If you are having a medical emergency, seek emergency care.
