Protect Your Health

According to the health district, everyone should take simple steps to prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19.

  • Wash hands often with soap and water;
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with an elbow or tissue;
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick;
  • Clean and disinfect frequently used objects and surfaces; and
  • Stay home when sick and avoid close contact with others

Practice Social Distancing

The health district advises folks to practice social distancing. Social distancing means keeping extra space between yourself and others to reduce the risk of getting or spreading COVID-19.

  • Keep at least 6 feet of space between yourself and others whenever possible;
  • Stay home as much as you can;
  • Avoid crowded areas;
  • Greet people without touching; and
  • Help family and friends who need assistance staying home

What Should I Do If I Feel Sick?

Common symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. Most people who have COVID-19 experience mild illness similar to a cold or flu. If you are sick, you should stay home and rest. If you feel you need medical evaluation or you are at higher risk for serious illness, stay home and call your health care provider for guidance.
