Protect yourself and others:

Although cases across the United States are increasing, the best precautions to take are the same precautions we take against the flu:

  • Wash your hand often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. An alcohol-based hand rub is a good second choice
  • Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, nose, and mouth.

It is now strongly recommended that you avoid all large public gatherings, or any venue that does not allow you to remain at least six feet away from another person.

Symptoms of COVID-19 include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

If you suffer any of these symptoms, stay at home and self-isolate. If your symptoms worsen to the point where you suffer acute pain, nausea, confusion, loss of consciousness, or persistent high fever, then seek medical help immediately.
