Coronavirus Information


How can I best protect myself from getting the novel coronavirus virus?

  • Use proper hand hygiene including washing hands with soap or using hand sanitizers. 
  • Avoid touching your face, particularly your eyes, nose, and mouth because one way viruses spread is when you touch your own mouth, nose or eyes.
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue, sleeve, or arm. Do not use your hands.
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces such as countertops and doorknobs.
  • Keep away from others who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.

What should I do if I don’t feel well?

  • If you have a fever, go home immediately and stay there until at least 24 hours after the fever goes away naturally without the use of fever-reducing medicine. For example, if your fever lasts for three days, you should stay home for at least four days.
  • Consider not attending or hosting large gatherings. This is where cold, flu, and other respiratory viruses are often spread.
  • If you do not have a primary care provider and you had contact with someone who is positive for COVID-19 (coronavirus), or experiencing symtopms such as a fever, cough, shortness of breath call  Valley Connections at       (888) 334-1000 

Should I avoid going to public events?

We know that viruses spread easily in large groups of people, so if you can, you should avoid large gatherings, especially if you do not feel well.

Do I need to wear a mask?

You may see some people buying and wearing face masks, but you should know that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not currently recommend that healthy people wear a mask to prevent novel coronavirus. Masks are not foolproof and just because you are wearing one, it does not mean you are in the clear from getting sick.

Facemasks can be helpful for sick people to wear so that they do not spread germs to others. We do not recommend healthy people wear face masks to protect from novel coronavirus.​
