From CDC - People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
We offer this advice from the CDC:
1. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing, or having been in a public place.
2. Avoid touching your face, nose, eyes, etc. with unwashed hands.
3. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizers that contains at least 60% alcohol.
4. Cover your coughs and sneezes with tissues; throw tissues away right after use; cough and sneeze into your elbow if you don’t have a tissue.
5. To the extent possible, avoid touching high-touch surfaces in public places – elevator buttons, door handles, handrails, handshaking with people, etc. Use a tissue or your sleeve to cover your hand or finger if you must touch something.
6. If you can’t avoid touching public surfaces - wash your hands after touching surfaces in public places.
7. Clean and disinfect to remove germs: practice routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces (for example: tables, countertops, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, toilets, faucets, sinks & cell phones).
8. If you go out in public, keep away from others who are sick, limit close contact and wash your hands often.
3. Avoid crowds as much as possible; a 6’ distance between people is recommended.
