GENERAL COVID19 INFORMATION

KNOW HOW IT SPREADS

  • The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

  • The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within

about 6 feet).

  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person

coughs, sneezes or talks.

  • These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are

nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

  • Some recent studies have suggested that COVID-19 may be spread

by people who are not showing symptoms.

  • It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has SARS-CoV-2 on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the primary way the virus spreads

KNOW HOW TO AVOID IT

  • Clean hands often 

Wash hands for at least 20 seconds 

  • If soap and water are not readily available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Avoid close contact

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others

  • Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance

  • Reserve use of N95 and surgical masks for healthcare workers

  • Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.

KNOW WHO IS AT RISK

  • Everyone is at risk, those with underlying health issues have a greater chance of being at risk 

  • People 65 years and older

  • People who live in a nursing home or long-term care facility

  • People of all ages with underlying medical conditions, particularly if not well controlled

  • People with chronic lung disease or moderate to severe asthma

  • People who have serious heart conditions

  • People who are immunocompromised

  • Many conditions can cause a person to be immunocompromised, including cancer treatment, smoking, bone marrow or organ transplantation, immune deficiencies, poorly controlled HIV or AIDS, and prolonged use of corticosteroids and other immune weakening medications

  • People with severe obesity (body mass index [BMI] of 40 or higher)
