• Stay home and away from others if you are sick

• Cover your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or tissue

• Wash your hands frequently for 20 seconds with soap and water

• Avoid touching your face

• Wear cloth face masks or coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures

are challenging to maintain, such as grocery stores, pharmacies, garden centers, and

greenhouses

• Stay at least 6 feet from other people in public

Patient awaiting testing or results reminder:

Patients with undiagnosed fever and/or acute respiratory symptoms (cough, shortness of breath) who

fever-reducing medications, and improvement of respiratory symptoms, whichever is longer.

 Isolate themselves from household and intimate contacts as much as possible.
