Call ahead before visiting your doctor. 
• Call ahead. 	Many medical visits for routine 	
care are being postponed or done by 
phone or telemedicine.
• If you have a medical appointment that cannot be postponed, call your 
doctor’s office. 	This will help the office protect themselves and  	
other patients.
If you are sick, wear a cloth covering over 
your nose and mouth.
• You should wear a cloth face covering over your 
nose and mouth	 if you must be around other 	
people or animals, including pets (even	 	
at home).
• You don’t need to wear the cloth face covering if you are alone. 
If you can’t put on a cloth face covering (because of trouble 
breathing for example), cover your coughs and sneezes in some 
other way. Try to stay at least 6 feet away from other people. 
This will help protect the people around you.
Note:	 During the COVID-19 pandemic, medical grade facemasks 	
are reserved for healthcare workers and some first responders. 
You may need to make a cloth face covering using a scarf	 	
or bandana.
If you develop	 emergency warning signs	 for COVID-19 get 	
medical attention immediately. 	 	
Emergency warning signs include*:
• Trouble breathing
• Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
• New confusion or not able to be woken
• Bluish lips or face
*This list is not all inclusive. Please consult your medical 
provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning 
to you.
Call 911 if you have a medical emergency. 	If you have a 	
medical emergency and need to call 911, notify the operator 
that you have or think you might have, COVID-19. If possible, 
put on a facemask before medical help arrives.

Prevent the spread of COVID-19 if you are sick
Accessible version:	
If you are sick with COVID-19 or think you might 
have COVID-19, follow the steps below to help 
protect other people in your home and community.
Stay home except to get medical care. 
• Stay home.	 Most people with COVID-19 	
have mild illness and are able to recover at 
home without medical care. Do not leave 
your home, except to get medical care. Do 
not visit public areas.
• Take care of yourself.	 Get rest and stay hydrated.	
• Get medical care when needed.	 Call your doctor before 	
you go to their office for care. But, if you have trouble 
breathing or other concerning symptoms, call 911 for 
immediate help.
• Avoid public transportation, 	ride-sharing, or taxis.	
Separate yourself from other people and 
pets in your home. 
• As much as possible, stay in a specific room 	and 	
away from other people and pets in your 
home. Also, you should use a separate 
bathroom, if available. If you need to be around other 
people or animals in or outside of the home, wear a 
cloth face covering.
 ɞSee COVID-19 and Animals if you have questions 
about pets:	
Monitor your symptoms.
• Common symptoms of COVID-19 include fever and 
cough. 	Trouble breathing is a more serious 	
symptom that means you should get 
medical attention.
• Follow care instructions from your healthcare provider and 
local health department. 	Your local health authorities 	
will give instructions on checking your symptoms 
and reporting information.

Cover your coughs and sneezes.
• Cover your mouth and nose 	with a tissue when 	
you cough or sneeze.
• Throw used tissues 	in a lined trash can.	
• Immediately wash your hands 	with soap and water for at least 	
20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, clean your 
hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at 
least 60% alcohol.
Clean your hands often.
• Wash your hands often	 with soap and water 	
for at least 20 seconds. This is especially 
important after blowing your nose, 
coughing, or sneezing; going to the 
bathroom; and before eating or	 	
preparing food.
• Use hand sanitizer 	if soap and water are not available. Use 	
an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, 
covering all surfaces of your hands and rubbing them 
together until they feel dry.
• Soap and water are the best option	, especially if your hands	 	
are visibly dirty.
• Avoid touching 	your eyes, nose, and mouth with	 	
unwashed hands.
Avoid sharing personal household items.
• Do not share 	dishes, drinking glasses, cups, 	
eating utensils, towels, or bedding with 
other people in your home.
• Wash these items thoroughly after using them 	with soap and 	
water or put them in the dishwasher.
Clean all “high-touch” surfaces everyday.
• Clean and disinfect 	high-touch surfaces 	
in your “sick room” and bathroom. Let 
someone else clean and disinfect surfaces 
in common areas, but not your bedroom 
and bathroom.
• If a caregiver or other person needs to clean and disinfect	 a sick 	
person’s bedroom or bathroom, they should do so on an 
as-needed basis. The caregiver/other person should wear a 
mask and wait as long as possible after the sick person has 
used the bathroom.
High-touch surfaces include phones, remote controls, counters, 
tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, keyboards, 
tablets, and bedside tables.
• Clean and disinfect areas that may have blood, stool, or body fluids 	 	
on them.	
• Use household cleaners and disinfectants. 	Clean the area or item 	
with soap and water or another detergent if it is dirty. Then 
use a household disinfectant.
 ɞBe sure to follow the instructions on the label to ensure 
safe and effective use of the product. Many products 
recommend keeping the surface wet for several minutes 
to ensure germs are killed. Many also recommend 
precautions such as wearing gloves and making sure you 
have good ventilation during use of the product.
 ɞMost EPA-registered household disinfectants should	 	
be effective.	
How to discontinue home isolation
• People 	with COVID-19 who have stayed home 	 	
(home isolated)	 can stop home isolation 	
under the following conditions:
 ɞIf you will not have a test	 to determine if you are still 	
contagious, you can leave home after	 	
these three things have happened:
 §	You have had no fever for at least 72 hours (that 
is three full days of no fever without the use of 
medicine that reduces fevers)	 	
 §	other symptoms have improved (for example, when 
your cough or shortness of breath has improved)	 	
 §	at least 10 days have passed since your symptoms	 	
first appeared.	
 ɞIf you will be tested	 to determine if you are still	 	
contagious, you can leave home after these three	 	
things have happened:
 §	You no longer have a fever (without the use	 	
of medicine that reduces fevers)	 	
 §	other symptoms have improved (for example, when 
your cough or shortness of breath has improved)	 	
 §	you received two negative tests in a row, 24 hours 
apart. Your doctor will follow CDC guidelines.	
In all cases, follow the guidance of your healthcare provider and local health 
department.	 The decision to stop home isolation should be made 	
in consultation with your healthcare provider and state and local 
health departments. Local decisions depend on	 	
local circumstances.
