WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU THINK YOU ARE SICK? 

A helpful decision making tool from the Michigan Department Health and Human Services for potential exposure:

I think I have been exposed to COVID-19, what should I do?

IF you are not seriously ill, we ask that you remain home, take care of yourself, and stay away from others. Find our more about caring for yourself at home here:

Steps to take while at home sick from the CDC

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO TO PROTECT YOURSELF?

  • PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING - in other words, stay away from groups of people and try to remain at least 6ft away from others. 
  • Work from and stay home if you can.  Follow orders from officials including Governor Whitmer regarding group gatherings: https://www.michigan.gov/whitmer/
  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Wash your hands frequently and well: use soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • If soap and water is not available, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60-95% alcohol.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze. Also avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, as this is how germs spread.
  • Disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a bleach based household cleaning spray or wipe.  These are products certified by the EPA to clean COVID-19.
  • Call ahead to your Healthcare Provider if you have a serious respiratory illness (most COVID-19 infections will not be serious).

WHAT PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE) SHOULD YOU USE? 

Updated 4/6/20

  • The CDC now recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies). Find out more about their recommendations and how to make a face covering (sew and no sew options) HERE.  
  • Surgical masks and N95 masks are still only recommended for health care workers.
