PREVENTION IS KEY

The overall consensus from health officials is to be aware and prepare, practice healthy habits and stay informed.  As preventative measures, health officials are reminding us to:

  • Wash your hands often
  • Exercise social distancing whenever and wherever possible
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid contact with sick people
  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Cover mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

In addition, if you feel sick with a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing or if you have been in contact with someone confirmed with COVID-19, please call your health care provider and notify them of your symptoms and any recent travel. Your health care provider will determine if you need to be seen in the office and if so, will provide special instructions to prevent exposing others.
