COVID-19 is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person, similar to influenza. Take Everyday Precautions • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. • Avoid touching your face. • Everyone should wear a cloth face cover in public setting where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. • Avoid crowds and keep at least six feet of space between yourself and others if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. • If you are in a private setting and do not have on your cloth face covering, remember to always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. » Throw used tissues in the trash and immediately clean your hands. • Routinely clean and disinfect surfaces you often touch, such as cell phones, computers, countertops, handles, and light switches. Preparing the Facility You may see changes as the dialysis facility prepares to keep you safe during treatment. This may include: • Signs with special instructions for patients with symptoms of COVID-19. • Additional education about hand hygiene and cough etiquette. • Waiting areas will be divided for patients with symptoms and patients without symptoms. • A change in patient chair locations, treatment times, or days. • A change in the gowns, facemasks, and eye protection that the staff wear. • Patients, visitors and staff will all be wearing a cloth face covering or facemask the entire time they are in the facility. Monitoring Symptoms Symptoms of COVID-19 can range from mild symptoms to severe illness. • Fever • New cough • Sore throat • Tiredness • Shortness of breath • Muscle aches If you feel sick or think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, call your facility right away to let them know.
