According to the Center for Disease Control, COVID-19 can be passed from person to person similarly to the common cold or flu. When a person coughs or sneezes, small respiratory droplets can transfer from person to person.

We are encouraging everyone to follow up-to-date CDC guidance which includes staying home when you're sick, practicing good hygiene and getting a COVID-19 vaccination if eligible. Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching your face—including eyes, nose and mouth. Avoid congregating and meeting in large groups, and follow all state and federal COVID-19 regulations. Normal day to day healthy practices such as eating a well-balanced diet, exercising and getting enough sleep are always a good idea.
Stay calm and keep yourself and your family at home. If you have COVID-19 symptoms such as a cough or fever, contact your health provider. If emergency warning signs occur, outlined by the CDC as trouble breathing, persistent pain or chest pressure, confusion or blue lips or face, seek medical assistance immediately. Having a fever does not warrant emergency medical assistance.
