The links below will take you to each agency’s COVID-19 Resource Page.
To help contain the spread of COVID-19, remember:
Wash your hands frequently, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water.
Regularly disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
Avoid close contact with others – stay six feet apart.
Avoid touching your face.
Cover all coughs and sneezes with tissue or the inside of your elbow.
STAY HOME – even if you are not considered high-risk, you can still pass the virus to others.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU FEEL SICK
If you are experiencing a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, and have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, call your doctor or emergency room to seek medical attention. The CDC has prepared a fact sheet you can read HERE.
