Centers for Disease Control and Prevention COVID-19 tips:

• Fever and cough are symptoms.

• Most people have mild illness and are able to recover at home. If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, contact your health care provider immediately.

• Keep track of symptoms.

• If you have an emergency warning sign (including trouble breathing), get medical attention right away.

• Some people who are not showing symptoms could have the illness.

Methods for preventing illness include:

• Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating and after nose-blowing, coughing or sneezing.

• If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.

• Avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

• Avoid contact with people who are sick; stay home if sick.

• Wear a face mask in public settings. The mask is intended to protect others.

• Social distancing: Stay 6 feet apart from others.
