Ongoing recommendations for COVID-19

People vulnerable to complications should follow federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations to stay home as much as possible and avoid gatherings. Every resident should take these basic steps to protect themselves and those most at risk:

  • Never visit a hospital or long-term-care facility if you have a fever or cough.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces like bathrooms, desks, countertops, doorknobs, computer keyboards, faucet handles, toys and cell phones.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home and away from others if you are ill.

After someone contracts COVID-19, illness usually develops within 14 days, OHA said. Symptoms mirror those of the flu, including fever, cough, runny nose, headache, sore throat and general feelings of illness.
