      Slow The Spread Of Covid-19

      People with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) can still spread the virus even if they don’t have any symptoms.

      Stay home if you spent time with someone who has or thinks they have COVID-19. It is critical that you stay home and away from others for 14 days from the last day that you were around that person.

      Consider getting tested for COVID-19.

      If You Think Or Know You Have Covid-19

      • Stay Home. Don’t leave your home except to get medical care if needed. Avoid going into public areas for at least 10 days since symptoms first appeared and at least 24 hours with no fever without fever-reducing medication and other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving.

      If you have a fever, cough or other symptoms, you might have COVID-19. Most people have mild illness and are able to recover at home. If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, contact your healthcare provider.

      • Protect Those In Your Household by wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet away from others in your household, washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, not sharing personal household items (e.g., cups, plates), cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces in shared spaces and improving ventilation in your home. See suggestions for those living in close quarters and shared housing.

      • Notify Close Contacts and let them know you have or may have been exposed to COVID-19 so that they can quarantine at home and can get tested. You are still considered a close contact even if you were wearing a mask while you were around someone with COVID-19.
