If you develop flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, sore throat)

Please consult your healthcare professional immediately and remain at home until your symptoms improve!

Arming yourself with information about how the virus is spread can be empowering and give you a sense of control.  According to the CDC, the best way to reduce your risk of getting a flu or respiratory virus, such as COVID-19, is to practice good hygiene. Minimize your risk by doing the following:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water frequently, and use alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water is not available.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the crook of your elbow (not your hands).
  • Stay home from school or work when you are sick.
  • Plan ahead for childcare in case children get sick and need to stay home from school.
  • Avoid travel when you are sick.
  • Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
  • Limit unnecessary trips and avoid crowded public spaces when possible.
  • Telecommute when possible.
  • If you are sick, wear a mask* when you go out in public or visit the doctor.
  • Call ahead before going to see a doctor or emergency room – call Contra Costa Public Health at 925-313-6740 for instructions about where to go if you do not have a healthcare provider.
