NOTE FROM NURSE SARA: I hope you all stay healthy.  Here are a couple reminders as of 3/19/20 during this COVID-19 pandemic: 

  • Remember the primary way COVID-19 is transmitted is through droplets from coughing and sneezing.  Wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your face, and keep six feet away from others.  Social distancing is maintaining a distance of 6 feet between yourself and others.
  • Stay home if you are sick!  
  • The main COVID-19 symptoms are a fever of 100 degrees or greater, cough, shortness of breath.  You may also have fatigue or body aches.  If you think you have a fever, CHECK.   If you have a cough, but no fever consider staying in your home to continue to assess if further symptoms develop. 
  • If you think you have symptoms of COVID-19 - contact your primary physician and stay home!   You must stay home until you have been without a fever for three days OR seven days from the onset of symptoms- whichever is longer.
