Talking Points:
  • If you feel sick & believe you need to be tested for Coronavirus, call your primary care provider.
  • Wear cloth face masks in public
  • Wash hands several times a day with soap and water (warm if possible) for a minimum of 20 seconds
  • Practice social distancing of about 6 feet
  • Regularly clean frequently touched surfaces
  • If you are sick, stay home
  • If you need medical attention, call ahead
  • If you have been in close contact with a person who has COVID-19, a public health worker may call to let you know you've been exposed and ask you to stay at home and self-quarantine. Doing so keeps you, your family, and your community safe. Getting tested for COVID-19 during quarantine is not necessary. If you decide to get tested and receive a negative result, it does not shorten the 14 day quarantine. It is important to remain in quarantine as you may develop symptoms at any time during the 14 day period. 
  • Close Contact = any individual who has been within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes
  • Do not flush wipes down the toilets
  • Before traveling, review travel restrictions on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Ohio Department of Health (ODH)
  • Follow official guidance from the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and the CDC
