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 symptoms such as a fever, cough, shortness of breath, Please call  Valley Connections at 1(888) 334-1000 

Should I avoid going to public events?

You should avoid gatherings, especially if you do not feel well.

Do I need to wear a mask?

The CDC and Department of Public Health currently recommends that individuals wear non-medical face masks / face coverings when visiting public spaces. Medical face masks should be reserved for medical professionals or vulnerable populations (immunocompromised, older adults 55+, those with chronic conditions-diabetes, lung/heart disease).

Face coverings should not be medical masks or other similar products but include any type of breathable material that will cover nose and mouth. Medical masks, such as N-95 and surgical masks, are strongly discouraged for general use. Due to the global demand for personal protective equipment (PPE), there is a severe shortage of PPE across the state. Santa Clara County Public Health asks residents to refrain from purchasing PPE for their own use and to utilize homemade face coverings instead.
