How to protect yourself and others:
What to do in your home:
What to do if you or a household member is sick:
· Stay home: People who are mildly ill with COVID-19 are able to recover at home. Do not leave, except to get medical care. Do not visit public areas.
· Stay in touch with your doctor. Call before you get medical care. Be sure to get care if you feel worse or you think it is an emergency.
· Avoid public transportation: Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
· Stay away from others: As much as possible, you should stay in a specific “sick room” and away from other people in your home. Use a separate bathroom, if available.
· Call ahead: If you have a medical appointment, call your doctor’s office or emergency department, and tell them you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the office protect themselves and other patients.
· If you are sick: You should wear a facemask when you are around other people and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office.
· If you are caring for others: If the person who is sick is not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then people who live in the home should stay in a different room. When caregivers enter the room of the sick person, they should wear a facemask. Visitors, other than caregivers, are not recommended.
The following symptoms may appear:
· Shortness of breath
· If you develop emergency warning signs, get medical attention immediately. Emergency warning signs include*:
o Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
o Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
o New confusion or inability to arouse
o Bluish lips or face.
o This list is not all-inclusive. Please consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning.
