Questions & Concerns


The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person when in close contact with one another and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. COVID-19 symptoms involve fever, coughing or difficulty breathing and either of the following:

  1. A recent visit to China, South Korea, Italy, Japan or Iran.
  2. Contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case.

If you are experiencing symptoms and feel medical care is needed, call ahead to the doctor for instruction so illness is not spread in the waiting rooms.  Seek immediate medical care if symptoms become more severe such as high fever or difficulty breathing.

What you can do

There are a number of effective steps you can take to protect your health as well as the health of your family:Close up of sudsy hands being washed in a white sink

  • Washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after using the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose or sneezing.
  • Use hand sanitizer effectively with an adequate amount for the hands to be wet and scrubbed for 20 seconds.  Keep rubbing until dry.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Routinely disinfect commonly used surfaces such as door knobs, handles, countertops, electronic devices, touch screens, and cell phones.
  • If you are not sick, we do not recommend using masks since infection happens when people touch their face and wearing a mask typically increases that behavior.

All other flu prevention steps can be used to prevent COVID-19.
