· If you are sick, wear a mask. If you are not sick, you do not need to wear a mask unless you are caring for someone who is sick.
· Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, counter tops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks. If surfaces are dirty, clean them: use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
· There is currently no drug treatment for COVID-19. The anti-malaria drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine have shown activity in laboratory studies against coronaviruses. Due to this, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an emergency-use authorization for hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine to combat the rapid spread of the coronavirus. However, clinical trials are still needed to provide scientific evidence that these treatments are effective.
Protect the people you care about and be responsible during this difficult time.
