Sick with COVID-19 Fact Sheet

As with any respiratory virus, the CDC says you can protect yourself and others by taking common sense actions:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a disposable tissue.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

If you are sick, please stay home. If you need further medical guidance, contact your primary healthcare provider.
