We want you to know what you can do to prepare for the coronavirus at home and if you need to visit a care center.
COVID-19 is a respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in China. It is now being spread from person to person in multiple locations across the U.S.
Here are a few tips to help prevent infection:
Call your primary care provider before traveling to a care center to understand the appropriate plan of care if you know you have been exposed to somebody with the COVID-19 virus or if you have a fever above 100.4 associated with a cough.
Consider a telephone visit for simple illness if possible.
If you arrive at a care center with respiratory symptoms, ask for a mask to wear.
