1- You should assume EVERY person you come in contact with is potentially infected. Regardless of where you go (down the street or to another zip code).
2- You should assume EVERY surface is potentially contaminated.
3- You should cough into your elbow or your sleeve, NOT your hand (see reason #2).
4- You should be following the governor’s stay at home order.
5- You should be following proper hand hygiene.
6- Practice social distancing (6ft)
7- If you exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough, body aches, WITHOUT shortness of breath, difficulty breathing or chest discomfort- you are asked to stay home and recover, you do NOT need to be tested, you can self isolate at home, which reduces exposure to others.
8- If you have been around a positive case and have no or even mild symptoms, you do NOT need a test. A positive test result is going to do NOTHING for you. You will only be exposing more persons by seeking this test.
9- Consider Atrium Health’s online virtual assessment for COVID-19 and the FREE virtual visit. If a doctor’s note is what you need to stay home from work, they can provide you with one, pending that a note is necessary and you are symptomatic.
