Prevention

Prevention guidelines for preventative measures you can take to stay healthy, including:

  • Contain germs by staying home when ill until at least 24 hours after having a fever or signs of a fever (chills, feeling warm, flushed appearance or sweating) without the use of fever-reducing medicine.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or upper arm/elbow.
  • Clean hands frequently with soap and water.


Health Reminder - When to Call a Dr.

As a reminder heading into spring break, particularly if you are traveling; if you get sick with fever (100.4°F/38°C or higher), cough, or have trouble breathing:

  • Seek medical care. Call ahead before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room.
  • Tell your doctor about your recent travel and your symptoms.
  • Avoid contact with others.

If you need to seek medical care for other reasons, such as dialysis, call ahead to your doctor and tell them about your recent travel to an area with widespread or ongoing community spread of COVID-19.
