COVID-19 is spreading easily among communities. Because this is a new virus, everyone is vulnerable to COVID-19. At this point it is vital to continue social distancing in order to prevent the spread of the virus and limit all non-essential activities. ACHD also strongly recommends the following:

  • Stay Home. Stay Safe. Save Lives. Stay home and only go out for essential travel.
  • Stay home when you are sick. Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, dry cough and shortness of breath. Isolate yourself from other people and call your health care provider.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Cover your mouth with a tissue or sleeve when sneezing or coughing.
  • The Ohio Department of Health strongly recommends that Ohioans wear cloth face coverings.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Clean high-touch areas daily using household cleaning spray or wipes according to label directions.
