How can You avoid getting COVID-19?

 The Virginia Department of Health recommends that everyone follow everyday prevention practices:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning product.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (sing Happy Birthday), especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60%–95% alcohol

 

If you do feel ill, please remember that there are many causes of respiratory illness. If you are sick, it is important that you speak with your healthcare provider. They can evaluate your illness and determine if you might need to be tested for the virus that causes COVID-19.

Please be aware that Hospitals and Elder Care Facilities may be restricting visitors to protect at risk populations within their facilities. If you are planning a visit to a hospital or Elder Care Facility (Rehab Facility, Nursing Home, Retiremient Home or Village), please call ahead and ensure that that facility is currently allowing visitors. If you are checking on elderly neighbors, also call ahead to ensure that they are receiving visitrors.

Please visit the Virginia Department of Health's Coronovirus Page for complete and updated information. This information was taken form the FAQ Document on March 12, 2020.
