CORONAVIRUS DISEASE (COVID-19)

The COVID-19 infection is widespread in Fremont County.

Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. They may also include achy muscles, runny nose, headache, diarrhea, sore throat and changes in taste and smell.

Social (Physical) Distancing helps prevent the spread of the virus. We do this by avoiding crowds, avoiding crowded spaces, and staying at least 6 feet apart. 

What do I do if a family member or I gets sick?

Keeping a sick person away from others is called ISOLATION. The sick person should stay in a separate room and use a separate bathroom if possible. They should also eat in a separate room.

  • Face Masks – The sick person should wear a face mask when they need to be in another room with people. If you are helping the sick person, you can also protect yourself by wearing a face mask when you are in their room.
  • Hand Washing – Wash your hands with soap and water often. You may also use hand sanitizer at times.
  • Cleaning– do this often
  • Wear disposable gloves when you clean and if you have to touch the sick person’s laundry, dishes, utensils, or trash.
  • Regularly clean things that are touched a lot including counters, bedside tables, doorknobs, computers, phones, and bathroom surfaces.
  • Clean with soap and water or other home cleaning products. Be sure to check that the products work on viruses. 

If a household member has any of the symptoms mentioned above, it should be assumed that they have COVID-19 and should stay in ISOLATION until at least 3 days (72 hours) have passed since recovery. RECOVERY is defined as at least 7 days after symptoms first started AND no fever for 3 days without medications AND improvement in cough and shortness of breath.
