CDC Releases COVID-19 Guidelines

If you're looking for more information about how to protect you and your family, the CDC has released their recommendations for how to keep yourself safe and what to do if you are sick.

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.

Everyone Should:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

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

  • Avoid close contact: Put 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household.

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

  • Clean and disinfect.

  • Monitor Your Health Daily: Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19.

You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick. Please consider using Telemedicine from your home to avoid contact with non-symptomatic people in your vicinity.
