Social distancing is widely seen as the best means available for the “pandemic,” a phrase that epidemiologists use to describe slow the spread of infection. This approach can save lives by keeping the local health care system from being overwhelmed.

In response to mounting cases, the state has started, prohibiting large gatherings and urged people to stay at home if possible. On Monday, recommends that Americans avoid gathering in groups of more than 10 people, discretionary travel and go out to eat.

In order to avoid the spread of disease, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention also recommends basic precautions such as hand washing and cleaning surfaces frequently touched every day.

The main COVID-19 is a fever, cough and shortness of breath. Some people also experience fatigue, headaches and, more rarely, diarrhea. Cases can range from. About 80 percent of the cases so far seems lighter, according to the World Health Organization.

To prevent coronavirus from spreading, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer when a sink is not available. WHO said people should wear face masks only when they are sick or caring for someone who is.

If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop symptoms, contact your doctor. Many state and local health departments have set up a hotline to answer questions, so that’s another good place to start. It’s important that you do not expose others. Contact your doctor before you go to the clinic so that they can take the necessary precautions.

Wash your hands as soon as you walk through the door. Avoid sharing personal items such as plates, cups, utensils. Clean and disinfect “high-touch” surfaces such as doorknobs and phones every day.

The virus is thought to spread mainly among people who are close to one another within about 6 feet. Spreads mainly through respiratory droplets spread when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Those droplets can land in the mouth or nose of someone nearby, and may infect them.

According to the CDC, it is possible for a person to become infected by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or maybe their eyes. But experts believe the virus spread mostly through contact with other people.

How do I self-quarantine?

The CDC has to care for yourself at home if you have a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19.
