PROTECT YOURSELF & OTHERS
Each of us can do our part to fight COVID-19 by staying home as much possible and practicing social distancing when we need to leave the house. Hospitals and medical staff will be under enormous strain in the next few weeks to care for individuals with COVID-19, and by staying home, you can make sure those beds are available for others. If you are feeling symptoms of COVID-19 or are worried about a possible exposure to someone who has tested positive, please review the guidance below from the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE).
For People Experiencing Symptoms (provided by CDPHE)
Mild symptoms (might include a combination of cough, body aches, fatigue, and chest tightness, with or without fever): Self-isolate, and use over-the-counter medications to treat your symptoms -- like you would for a cold or other respiratory illness.
Serious symptoms, especially trouble breathing: Self-isolate, use over-the-counter medications and contact a health care provider or nurseline if your illness becomes more severe. The provider may recommend you be tested for COVID-19, and should be able to instruct you on how to get a test.
Severe symptoms: call 911 for symptoms of heart attack or stroke; difficulty breathing or choking; difficulty speaking, walking, or seeing; an allergic reaction; confusion, dizziness, or disorientation; sudden, severe pain
