As you may know, the world is experiencing an expanding outbreak of respiratory illness (COVID-19) caused by a new coronavirus. The virus can spread from person-to-person. Older adults and those with underlying medical conditions are especially at risk. We take our role in protecting the health of our members and community very seriously.
If you have been in close contact of someone with COVID-19 or you are a resident in a community where there is ongoing spread of COVID-19 and develop symptoms of COVID-19, call your healthcare provider and tell them about your symptoms and your exposure. They will decide whether you need to be tested, but keep in mind that there is no treatment for COVID-19 and people who are mildly ill may be able to isolate and care for themselves at home.
Emergency warning signs include*:
If you have symptoms of respiratory illness and are concerned you may have risk factors for COVID-19, please call your primary care provider first. They may be able to complete a risk assessment over the phone and provide guidance on next steps, which may include arranging testing if necessary. If you need to visit the emergency department to treat symptoms, call ahead to your local facility and ask for a protective facemask when you arrive.
If you are sick with COVID-19 or suspect you are infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, follow the steps below to help prevent the disease from spreading to people in your home and community.
We urge you to follow the established guidelines for protection. For on-duty law enforcement and public safety personnel, please be sure to wipe your equipment (to include your phones and radios) with 70% alcohol wipes.
