    HOW THE VIRUS IS SPREAD 

    COVID-19 spreads when an infected person breathes out droplets and very small particles that contain the virus. These droplets and particles can be breathed in by other people or land on their eyes, noses, or mouth. In some circumstances, they may contaminate surfaces they touch. People who are closer than 6 feet from the infected person are most likely to get infected.

    COVID-19 is spread in three main ways:

    • Breathing in air when close to an infected person who is exhaling small droplets and particles that contain the virus.
    • Having these small droplets and particles that contain virus land on the eyes, nose, or mouth, especially through splashes and sprays like a cough or sneeze.
    • Touching eyes, nose, or mouth with hands that have the virus on them.

    WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS

    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. Anyone can have mild to severe symptoms. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

    • Fever or chills

    • Fatigue
    • Muscle or body aches

    PREVENTION

    The key with any virus is the importance of protecting yourself and prevent the spread to others.  The most effective way is hand sanitizing.

    WASH your hands with soap and water vigorously (including under fingernails) for a minimum of 20 seconds.  It is recommended to wash hands whenever you have touched public surfaces, before preparing or consuming food, or have touched another person who is sick.

    REFRAIN from touching your face, eyes, mouth and nose.

    COVER your cough & sneeze with a tissue and dispose of it in trash.

    AVOID close contact with people who are sick.

    STAY home when sick until fever has been less than 100.4 for 24 hours and your symptoms are gone.

    CLEAN and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces such as door knobs, light switches, and TV remotes.
