- Cover your cough or sneeze with the crook of your arm, not your hands
- Avoid touching your face, including the inside of your nose
- Stay home from work or school if you are sick
- Get your flu shot to protect against flu
If you have recently returned from a country with ongoing coronavirus infections, monitor your health and contact your healthcare provider if you develop upper respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath.
Health experts agree that the measures taken have been effective in containing the coronavirus, but that if precautions are not taken, the coronavirus could spread to communities across the United States.You should prepare for the possibility disruption of day-to-day activities that an outbreak will cause.
THINGS YOU CAN DO INCLUDE:
- Ensure you have adequate supply of essential medicines
- Prepare a childcare plan if the childcare is not available (including school closures)
- Staying up to date with trusted resources (e.g., CDC)
- Have sufficient food in the event you have to stay home
Marin residents who have recently returned from areas with community transmission of coronavirus, such as Italy, are considered low risk and are not being asked to stay isolated at home.
