The most important thing is to stay at home and self-isolate if you have a cough or fever. Do not go to work, as you risk spreading the virus. If you have difficulty smelling or tasting, consult your health care provider about self-quarantining and staying home from work, as doctors are seeing this emerge as a common symptom of infection. It’s important to note that if you can still smell and taste, this does not mean you are not infected.
If you are healthy and are required to return to work, keep at least 6 feet of space between yourself and others whenever possible. Wear a face covering and other personal protective equipment (PPE) whenever possible, wash your hands frequently with soap and hot water, and help promote hand washing for all employees and clients.
You should also use disinfectants to regularly wipe down surfaces and objects that are frequently used such as desks, counters, keyboards and phones.
If you need to cough, cough into your elbow and not into your hands.
