Frequently Asked Questions about COVID-19

What is it?
COVID-19 is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person when an infected individual coughs and/or sneezes while in close contact (less than 6 feet) with others. It is also possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the
virus on it, and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes.

What are the symptoms?
Symptoms typically appear 2-7 days after an individual was initially in contact with the virus. Individuals have experienced mild to severe respiratory symptoms including cough, shortness of breath, and a fever.

How can I protect myself and others?
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Follow social distancing recommendations (maintain a distance of 6 feet or more) and avoid close contact with others.
• Most importantly, if you are sick please reach out to your manager/leader and stay home.
