Reduce your risk of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and avoid infecting others:

  • Practice social distancing by staying at least 6 feet away from others.
  • Avoid or limit time in public places or activities that bring you within 6 feet of others.
  • Don’t have guests in your home, and don’t leave home if you have symptoms.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or your inner elbow when you cough or sneeze. Throw the used tissue in the trash.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or using an alcohol-based gel after you blow your nose, cough, sneeze, or go to the bathroom and before you prepare or eat food.
  • Regularly clean all high touch surfaces such as door handles, countertops, computer keyboards and tablets, light switches, and phones once a day or more.
  • Avoid sharing personal household items like cups, glasses, eating utensils, and toothbrushes.

COVID-19 symptoms to look for:

  • Cough.
  • Difficulty breathing.
  • A fever greater or equal to 100 degrees F.
    • Be sure to check temperature before you take any medications intended to lower fever.
    • Do not let anyone else use the same thermometer.
  • If you are exposed to someone who has lab-confirmed COVID-19) infection, watch for fever, cough, or shortness of breath.
  • If you do develop symptoms, contact your healthcare provider.

If you work with patients or people who have a higher risk for COVID-19:

  • Take your temperature before going to work or beginning your shift.
  • Check your temperature a 2 to 3 times a day. A fever is 100 degrees F or higher.
  • Avoid letting anyone else use the same thermometer during this period.
  • If you do not have a fever, cough or shortness of breath you do not need to be tested.
  • If you do get a fever, cough or shortness of breath, notify your supervisor and contact your healthcare provider.
  • Whether you need testing depends on your symptoms for COVID-19.
  • Ill caregivers must be cleared by their Caregiver Health Department prior to returning to work.

If you are ill, or were told that you need to be tested for COVID-19:

  • Follow the instructions given to you and get tested as soon as possible.
  • Self-isolate before your test and until you receive your test results.
  • Check your temperature 3 to 4 times a day. A fever is 100 degrees F or higher.
  • Do not have visitors in your home and stay away from other people.
  • If possible, use a separate bathroom.
  • Wear a facemask when you are with other people or animals.
  • Avoid coming within 6 feet of household members who have weakened immune systems. This includes:
    • Women who are pregnant.
    • People over the age of 60 years.
    • People with chronic medical conditions such as cancer, diabetes, or heart disease.
  • Wash your laundry immediately and thoroughly in warm or hot water.
    • Wear disposable gloves while handling soiled clothing items.
    • Keep soiled clothing items away from your body.
    • Clean your hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer immediately after removing your gloves.
  • Use caution emptying wastebaskets. Wash your hands with soap and water afterward.

During your illness:

Drink plenty of fluids

  • Clear liquids like water, clear broth, herbal tea, or warm lemon water are good choices.
  • Warm liquids help soothe your sore throat.
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol, as these can dehydrate you.

Take your medications as directed by your provider

  • If you are taking other medicines, check with your pharmacist. They have a complete list of the medicines you are taking and can make sure that nothing will interact.
  • An over-the-counter cough medicine may temporarily help quiet your cough.

Practice self-care

  • Over-the-counter sore throat lozenges or spray may help numb a sore throat.
  • Sore throats can be soothed without medication by gargling with saltwater.
  • Fever or body aches can be treated with Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen. Follow the directions on the package.

Limit contact with others

  • Stay at home and at least 6 feet away from people.
  • Don’t use public transportation (no airplanes, ships, buses, trams, or trains).
  • Avoid having people, including friends, family, or coworkers over to your home.
  • Avoid public places or activities that bring you in close contact (within 6 feet) of others.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand gel (both are effective).
  • Cover your cough and sneezes with a tissue or your elbow. Place the used tissue in the trash.
  • Do not share personal household items like cups, glasses, eating utensils, and toothbrushes.

Returning to school or work:

  • If you have a positive test (you have COVID-19), or been under isolation, you may return to work either 10 days after your positive test, and at least 24 hours have passed since your last fever (without taking fever-lowering medications) and your symptoms have improved.
  • If you have a negative test (you do not have COVID-19) or were told not to get tested, you may return to work or school once you no longer have a fever (without taking fever-lowering medications) for at least 24 hours and your other symptoms are improved.
  • If you are without symptoms and/or have had a negative test (you do not have COVID-19) BUT you have had contact with a person with a positive COVID 19 test, you may need to self-quarantine. Please contact your medical home or primary care physician for details.
  • If you are a person with severe immunocompromise or have had a severe case of COVID-19, please contact your primary care provider or medical home for further guidance.
  • If you need an updated work or school note, please contact your primary care provider.

Pediatric Information

Medication information: 

  • For children, the goal of giving a medication should be to help reduce fever and relieve symptoms.
  • Using the proper dose of acetaminophen or ibuprofen is reasonable and safe.
  • Both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the World Health Organization agree that Ibuprofen is safe. Currently, not enough evidence exists to recommend against using ibuprofen unless you have a medical condition that makes ibuprofen less safe or are allergic to it.
  • Please talk to your Pediatrician about the correct dose before using any medication.
  • Overall, we want your child to feel comfortable, drink enough liquids, keep up their activity level and when there are signs of serious illness call your physician’s office.

School and childcare closings:

  • In order to help slow the spread of the virus, in many communities, schools and childcare centers have been temporarily closed.
  • We recommend helping your child keep a routine and daily schedule as best as possible.
  • Reading together strengthens your bond with your child, helps with their development and it is FUN.
  • Activities like reading together and playing games together can be a fun way to build memories and bond during this time.
  • If your kids are missing school, friends, or family try video chats to keep in touch.
  • Whenever possible play video games or go online with your child to keep the media and screen time limited and structured.

Talking to your children about COVID-19:

  • The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that parents talk to their children about COVID-19 in a way that they can understand to reduce overwhelm and fear.
  • Signs of anxiety in children include crankiness, clinging on, insomnia or being distracted. If you see any of these give reassurance and stick to normal routines.
  • For both older and younger children, media reports can cause a lot of fear. Keep your kids away from frightening images and talk to them about what they are hearing or seeing.
  • Be a positive role model by showing empathy and support for those who are ill regardless of ancestry or geographic location.
  • Give your child control by reminding them to wash their hands often, cough into a tissue or their sleeves and to get enough sleep.

Immediate Care or Emergency Department visits during the Covid-19 pandemic are intended to screen for moderate to severe illness.

If your symptoms get worse, please call your primary healthcare provider’s office, if this is not an option, you are always welcome to go to the Immediate Care or Emergency Dept for evaluation
