Under the current COVID-19 situation we would like to provide you with links to a variety of information from the CDC (Center for Disease Control)
HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF:
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
The following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure.
FEVER – COUGH – SHORTNESS OF BREATH
Call your doctor: If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider for medical advice.
Please: Do not go to urgent care or the Emergency Room before you talk to your doctors’ office. It only increases the risk of spreading the disease if you actually do have it.
WHO IS AT HIGHER RISK?
Who is at Higher Risk?
Early information out of China, where COVID-19 first started, shows that some people are at higher risk of getting very sick from this illness. This includes:
- Older adults
- People who have serious chronic medical conditions like:
- Heart disease
- Lung disease
If a COVID-19 outbreak happens in your community, it could last for a long time. (An outbreak is when a large number of people suddenly get sick.) Depending on how severe the outbreak is, public health officials may recommend community actions to reduce people’s risk of being exposed to COVID-19. These actions can slow the spread and reduce the impact of disease.
