Sick individuals should stay home and away from others and contact their healthcare provider if needed. The healthcare provider can assess the individual’s risk and determine whether they should be tested for novel coronavirus.
Coronaviruses, including COVID-19, spread between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) via coughing or sneezing. It may also spread by touching a surface or object with the virus on it. The same good health habits that prevent other viruses like the flu also prevent the spread of COVID-19 and decrease the risk of getting sick:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, with 60% alcohol, if soap and water are not available.
Cough into a tissue or your elbow (not your hand), then throw tissue away and wash your hands.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid contact with people who are sick.
Stay home when you are sick.
Keep students home if they are running a temperature or they report not feeling well or appear weak or ill.
Consult your health care provider if you or your child has health conditions that put you at increased risk.
