Here are five things to know and do NOW as recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Dr. Nancy Meissonier.
- The risk of contracting this virus remains low. According to the CDC, ¾ of contracted cases are mild. Symptoms, if there are symptoms at all, can include a low-grade fever and cough. Some people experience fatigue, headaches and, less frequently, diarrhea.
- Follow the same flu CDC guidelines
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Viruses can spread from person-to-person so keep your touching of doorknobs, elevator buttons, shopping carts, etc. at a minimum. If /when you do touch these things, do not then touch your eyes, nose, mouth.
- Try not to shake hands and/or kiss others on the cheek when greeting one another.
- Stay away from those who are sick if possible. If caring for someone who is sick, wear a mask and gloves.
- Try to avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose.
- Cover your cough/sneeze with a tissue and then discard that tissue immediately.
- Clean and disinfect well-used surfaces in kitchen and bathrooms (and anywhere else) often.
- Stay at home when you fell sick.
- Prepare as you would for a pending snowstorm/hurricane.
- Stock up over time (do NOT hoard) non-perishables such as rice and beans and freeze meats, vegetables, breads – 2-3 weeks of food supplies
- Do the same with both prescription and non-prescription medications and medicines.
- Discuss work-from-home options with your colleagues.
- Plan and prepare for childcare in the event school and/or other activities are suspended.

- Travel smart.
- The CDC recommends that older adults and/or adults with chronic conditions postpone any non-essential travel.
- Check with you health insurance provider to determine whether or not your policy covers international travel.
