What You Need to Know About COVID-19

March 19, 2020 COVID-19

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person and is diagnosed with a laboratory test. Symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and are experiencing symptoms, call your healthcare provider.

To protect yourself and others from COVID-19:

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Wear a mask (only if you have symptoms—The CDC does not recommend wearing a mask if you are well).
For the most updated information about the virus, visit the CDC or Utah Department of Health websites.

Telehealth is not appropriate for every medical concern, so it’s important to ask your provider whether a virtual visit is suitable for your needs.
