You should also take common-sense precautions, like the ones listed below, and make sure you are keeping tabs on any new guidance issued by reliable authorities.

  • Symptoms can include a fever, cough or shortness of breath.
  • They can appear two to 14 days after exposure. If you think you’re experiencing symptoms, please contact your primary care provider before going to the hospital.

Going out in public could worsen the spread of the virus and endanger at-risk populations — like seniors and people with pre-existing respiratory conditions.

  • Use soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds and wash them every time you go outsideor expose yourself to the general public.
  • Avoid touching your face – especially your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with your hand, elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • Panic and chaos can make the situation worse. Just stay calm, be safe, and we’ll get through this together.
