Symptoms and Preventive Measures
This disease is highly contagious. We care about the health of our clients, our team members, and the community so we urge you to take all the precautions necessary to protect yourselves including thorough hand-washing, coughing into a tissue or your elbow, avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, and cleaning frequently touched surfaces.
We ask all patients and visitors to notify us in advance if they feel they are at risk for COVID-19 and to take preventative measures for the safety of themselves and others.
Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough and difficulty breathing. These symptoms may be similar to the flu or the common cold. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia and other complications, especially in infants, older individuals and those with underlying health conditions. Please review the CDC Website for the latest travel advisories when considering travel for yourself or your family. Also, remember that your best defense to help prevent the spread of respiratory disease like COVID-19 is to follow good prevention practices:
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds or use and alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with tissues
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, like your cell phone
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Stay home if you are feeling sick
- If you are caring for an ill person, stay home for an estimated incubation period (2 weeks)
- If you have traveled recently or have been in close contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19 and are experiencing the above symptoms, please seek medical attention right away.
