Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Updates
• Symptoms – fever, cough, shortness of breath, chest pressure or pain. Additional symptoms provided by individuals who have been infected with COVID-19 are loss of taste and runny nose.
• Wearing a face mask - The CDC has now stated everyone should wear a mask when traveling outside of your residence. This protects you as well as others. Many cases have been revealed with spread by people who are not showing symptoms (asymptomatic). This increase in the prevalence of asymptomatic spread is the contributing factor to why the CDC now says everybody should wear a face mask when going out in public.
• Due to the scarcity of masks, there are many how-to videos released on ways to make your own masks out of cloth material. The mask should fit closely on the face, cover the mouth and nose and be frequently washed.
