The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been classified as a global pandemic. In an effort to keep the community safe, we want all neighbors to take precautions to stay healthy during this time.
The Coronavirus is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure. Patients with Covid-19 have mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of fever, cough, or shortness of breath.
Take the following steps to limit your exposure to the virus:
· Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
· Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
· Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
· Clean all “high-touch” surfaces like doorknobs, tabletops, bathroom fixtures, phones & remotes.
If you suspect that you are infected with the Coronavirus: please stay home except to get medical care; separate yourself from other people and animals in your home; call ahead before visiting your doctor; wear a facemask; avoid sharing persona household items such as drinking glasses and blankets; monitor your symptoms.
