Steps to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

  • Stay Home

    Please do not leave your home if you are experiencing any symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, headache, chills, or sore throat. Call your physician’s office if you have questions.

  • Cover your cough and sneezes

    Use a tissue or the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in the trash. Immediately wash your hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds.

  • Stay in touch with your physician

    Call your physician’s office with questions you may have. Be sure to notify them if your symptoms worsen or if you think your illness may be an emergency.

Watch for Symptoms of Covid-19

Reported illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death for confirmed Coronavirus/COVID-19 cases.

The following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure.

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sore throat

If you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19 get medical attention immediately. Emergency warning signs include*:

  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • New confusion or inability to arouse
  • Bluish lips or face

*This list is not all inclusive. Please consult your physician’s office for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning.


Disinfecting Tips and Safety

Most common EPA-registered household disinfectants will work. Use disinfectants appropriate for the surface.

Dilute your household bleach

  • To make a bleach solution, mix 5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water or 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water
  • Make sure to follow manufacturer’s instructions for application and proper ventilation. Check to ensure the product is not past its expiration date. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser. Unexpired household bleach will be effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted.

Alcohol solutions

  • Ensure solution has at least 70% alcohol.
  • Other common EPA-registered household disinfectants.
    Products with EPA-approved pathogens label claims are expected to be effective against COVID-19 based on data for harder to kill viruses. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for all cleaning and disinfection products (e.g., concentration, application method and contact time, etc.).
