Steps to take while at home sick from the CDC

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO TO PROTECT YOURSELF?

  • Wear masks with large groups of people and/or with people whom you do not know their vaccination status. 
  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Wash your hands frequently and well: use soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • If soap and water is not available, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60-95% alcohol.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze. Also avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, as this is how germs spread.
  • Disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a bleach based household cleaning spray or wipe.  These are products certified by the EPA to clean COVID-19.
  • Call ahead to your Healthcare Provider if you have a serious respiratory illness (most COVID-19 infections will not be serious).
