Cen­ters for Disease Con­trol and Preven­tion on iden­ti­fy­ing COVID-19:

■ Fever and cough are symp­toms.

■ Most peo­ple have mild ill­ness and are able to re­cover at home. If you think you may have been ex­posed to COVID-19, con­tact your health care provider im­me­di­ately.

■ Keep track of symp­toms.

■ If you have an emer­gency warn­ing sign (in­clud­ing trou­ble breath­ing), get med­i­cal at­ten­tion right away.

■ Some peo­ple who are not show­ing symp­toms could have the ill­ness.

Preven­tion is the best method for pre­vent­ing ill­ness. This in­cludes:

■ Wash­ing hands of­ten with soap and wa­ter for at least 20 sec­onds, es­pe­cially af­ter go­ing to the bath­room, be­fore eat­ing and af­ter nose-blow­ing, cough­ing or sneez­ing.

■ If soap and wa­ter are not read­ily avail­able, use a hand san­i­tizer with at least 60 per­cent al­co­hol.

■ Avoid­ing touch­ing eyes, nose and mouth with un­washed hands.

■ Avoid con­tact with peo­ple who are sick; stay home if sick.

■ Wear­ing a face mask in pub­lic set­tings. The mask is in­tended to pro­tect oth­ers.

■ So­cial dis­tanc­ing, stay 6 feet apart from oth­ers.

■ Clean and dis­in­fect fre­quently touched sur­faces daily. This in­cludes ta­bles, door­knobs, light switches, coun­ter­tops, han­dles, desks, phones, key­boards, toi­lets, faucets and sinks.
