The current CDC recommendation is that the majority of people who contract this virus can successfully recover at home. If you start experiencing symptoms which include coughing, fever and shortness of breath, and they become severe – contact your healthcare provider. The CDC believes that symptoms of COVID-19 may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure.

Tips for the general public:

☑Wash hands often for 20 seconds and encourage others to do the same.

☑If no soap and water are available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

☑Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

☑Disinfect surfaces, buttons, handles, knobs, and other places touched often.
