Prevent the spread of germs. Avoid close contact with people who are sick, cover your cough/sneeze, avoid touching your face, clean “high touch” surfaces, stay home when sick, wash your hands often, cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others. Here are tips on how to protect yourself when you go out for essential errands.
CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings (such as grocery stores and pharmacies). These can help slow the spread of the virus. Cloth face coverings can be made from a scarf, bandana, or you can make one using one of these patterns online. Sew and No-Sew Instructions
Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders.
People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness.
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
This list is not all possible symptoms. Other less common symptoms have been reported, including gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.
If you develop emergency warning signs* for COVID-19 get emergency medical attention immediately. Emergency warning signs include:
*This list is not all possible symptoms. Please call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you. Call 911 or call ahead to your local emergency facility: Notify the operator that you are seeking care for someone who has or may have COVID-19.
Protect the vulnerable. Protect the healthcare system. Closing schools, implementing social distancing is all designed to “flatten the curve.” It is critical that we flatten the curve so that the health care system can better manage the flow of people seeking care.
COVID-19 is a new disease and there is limited information regarding risk factors for severe disease. Based on currently available information and clinical expertise, older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
Based upon available information to date, those at high-risk for severe illness from COVID-19 include:
Extra steps people in higher risk groups or their caretakers can take:

If you have recovered from a confirmed case of COVID-19, visit COVIDConnect for Marylanders.

It will be a place for you to share information, promote action and find support.
The purpose of contact tracing is to limit the number of people who will get infected by COVID-19.
If you are confirmed positive for COVID-19, you will be contacted by a public health worker to get more information about where you have been and who you have been with.
The contact tracer will help you recall everyone you have had close contact with during the timeframe while you were infectious.
The contact tracer will contact these exposed individuals (contacts) of their potential exposure as rapidly and sensitively as possible.
To protect patient privacy, contacts are only informed that they may have been exposed to a patient with the infection. They are not told the identity of the patient who may have exposed them.
Contacts are provided with education, information, and support to understand their risk, what they should do to separate themselves from others who are not exposed, monitor themselves for illness, and the possibility that they could spread the infection to others even if they themselves do not feel ill.
Contacts are encouraged to stay home and maintain social distance from others (at least 6 feet) until 14 days after their last exposure, in case they also become ill. They should monitor themselves by checking their temperature twice daily and watching for cough or shortness of breath. To the extent possible, public health staff should check in with contacts to make sure they are self-monitoring and have not developed symptoms. Contacts who develop symptoms should promptly isolate themselves and notify public health staff. They should be promptly evaluated for infection and for the need for medical care.
