Precautions Your Family Can Take

Think of the coronavirus like you would the flu and take all the same precautions. For many, the coronavirus is coming across as something bigger and scarier than the flu, but the truth remains that the flu is a bigger risk to most of us and, fortunately, the steps you can take to avoid contracting the flu are the same as those recommended for avoiding the coronavirus. With this in mind, if you are experiencing any flu or cold symptoms, or are feeling sick in general, please stay home in order to keep you and your community safe and healthy. Here is a reminder of best practices during this flu/virus season.

To prevent the spread of cold, flu, and coronavirus:

  • Wash hands frequently (washing for 20 seconds is ideal).
  • If water and soap are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Do not touch eyes, nose or mouth as this is the best way to transmit the virus from a surface into your body
  • Cover your mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing by using a tissue or sleeve (not your hands)
  • Regularly disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Get a flu shot (recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older)

Visit the CDC’s website for more detailed preventative measures.

Stay home if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Very stuffy or runny nose and/or cough
  • Mild sore throat
  • Headache
  • Stomachache
  • Call your doctor to report respiratory symptoms prior to a visit
