The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicates the main COVID-19 symptoms are: fever, cough and shortness of breath. Everyday preventive actions can help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases:
- Avoid contact with others who are sick
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
- Do not travel while sick
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
