What should I do if I develop COVID-19/Coronavirus?
- Stay home: People who are mildly ill are able to recover at home. Do not leave, except to get medical care. Do not visit public areas.
- Stay in touch with your doctor. Call before you get medical care. Be sure to get care if you feel worse or you think it is an emergency.
- Avoid public transportation: Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
- Stay away from others: As much as possible, you should stay in a specific “sick room” and away from other people in your home. Use a separate bathroom, if available.
- Limit contact with pets & animals: You should restrict contact with pets and other animals, just like you would around other people.
- Although there have not been reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19, it is still recommended that people with the virus limit contact with animals
- When possible, have another member of your household care for your animals while you are sick with COVID-19. If you must care for your pet or be around animals while you are sick, wash your hands before and after you interact with them.
How can I prevent myself from catching/spreading COVID-19/Coronavirus?
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Put distance between yourself and other people.
- Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
- Throw used tissues in the trash.
- Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- (If you are sick) You should wear a facemask when you are around other people and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room.
- ONLY WEAR FACEMASKS WHEN YOU ARE SICK OR IF YOU ARE TENDING TO SOMEONE WHO IS SICK.
- Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
- If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
How do I know when it's safe to leave self-isolation?
- People with COVID-19 who have stayed home (home isolated) can stop home isolation under the following conditions:
- If you will not have a test to determine if you are still contagious, you can leave home after these three things have happened:
- You have had no fever for at least 72 hours (that is three full days of no fever without the use medicine that reduces fevers)
- other symptoms have improved (for example, when your cough or shortness of breath have improved)
- at least 7 days have passed since your symptoms first appeared
- If you will be tested to determine if you are still contagious, you can leave home after these three things have happened:
- You no longer have a fever (without the use medicine that reduces fevers)
- other symptoms have improved (for example, when your cough or shortness of breath have improved)
you received two negative tests in a row, 24 hours apart. Your doctor will follow CDC guidelines.
Is my county issuing a curfew or lockdown?
- Flagler County: Palm Coast is the only city that has issued a voluntary stay-at-home order
- Flagler County Emergency Management is asking residents who are 65 years old or more – and those with pre-existing health conditions – to stay home for 2 weeks following the health advisory issued by the Florida Surgeon General
- Volusia County: No immediate lockdowns or stay-at-home orders have been issued
I feel scared and anxious about COVID-19/Coronavirus. What can I do?
- First of all, remember that feeling anxious or scared about something as big as this is perfectly natural. Take solace in the fact that scientists, doctors and some of the greatest minds in the world are taking care of this situation to the best of their ability. Remember that freaking out is the worst thing anyone could do in a situation like this.
- If you are at home, try to distract yourself with a new hobby, read a book you haven't read before or read one of your favorites.
- Try watching some TV (but take a break from the news channels). Watch a movie or see what's available through on-demand or an online streaming service.
- Stay in contact with friends and family and share what you're feeling, they might feel the same way or they might know of a way to make you feel better.
