COVID-19 IMPACT FAQs

What do I do if I have symptoms?

If you feel sick, Stay home. Do not go to work. If your children are sick keep them at home. If you are at work, go home and self quarantine. 

Call your healthcare provider before going in to  see them. They will ask you some questions to see if you meet the criteria to be screened.  Follow your providers instructions. 

Call 911 if you have any of the following symptoms:

Constant chest pain or pressure, 

Extreme difficulty breathing, 

Severe, constant dizziness or light headedness, 

Slurred speech, 

or Difficulty waking up.

Should I go to the doctor or emergency room for testing?

Contact your medical provider before going to be tested. They will ask you some questions to see if you meet the criteria to be tested for the virus. 


 If someone in your household has tested positive for the Coronavirus, keep the entire    household at home.  If you are an older American, stay home and away from other people.  If you are a person with a serious underlying health condition—such as a significant heart or lung problem—stay home and away from other people. 


Here is a link to a really good  Do It Yourself COVID 19 screening tool that you can complete to see if you meet the criteria to be tested. https://www.apple.com/covid19



What are some essential Items and Habits during COVID-19?

  1. Purchase enough food items for your home for two weeks.
  2. Top off your supply of food and household items to last for two weeks frequently.
  3. Reduce your errands as much as possible. Consider making no more than two trips a week from your home. This reduces your risk to exposure.
  4. Do not allow visitors into your home, even family unless absolutely necessary.
  5. If your budget is stretched due to job layoff, consider taking autopay off of all of your bank accounts.
  6. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects in your home (Doorhandles, faucets, remote controls, computers, tablets, phones,…)
  7. Clean and disinfect your automobile (Steering wheels, signal, radio, gear, electric windows, arm rest, car seat, …)
  8. Disinfect all packaging once it’s brought into your home.
  9. Utilize Social-media as much as possible to stay in contact with your family and friends. This includes videoconferencing & FaceTime as well.
  10. When possible, go outside in your yard or neighborhood just to get at least 30 minutes of exercise. Remember, you must maintain social distancing. This is not the time to go visiting. This is the time for exercise and some vitamin D from the sun.
