Infection Prevention Guidelines:

• The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person between people who are in close contact with one another (within 6 feet). Using physical distancing strategies helps minimize that close contact where droplets can transmit disease.
Wear masks in public settings to reduce the potential for spreading the disease. The Maricopa Mask Mandate continues to be in effect.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Stay at home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) and immediately throw the tissue in the trash and disinfect your hands.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
Avoid congregating in groups. People at higher risk for severe illness include adults 65 or older and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions.

Symptoms and Severity:

Illness can be severe and require hospitalization, but most individuals recover by resting, drinking plenty of liquids, and taking pain and fever-reducing medications. These symptoms may appear 2–14 days after exposure and can include: fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, other less common symptoms include gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.

If you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19, get medical attention immediately. Emergency warning signs include: difficulty getting enough air, chest pain, change in alertness or responsiveness, bluish lips or face, rapid breathing.

*These symptom lists are not all inclusive. Please consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning.
