Mobile IV Nurses Response to COVID-19
What is COVID-19?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the virus is principally spread person-to-person mainly via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, similar to how influenza and other viruses that cause respiratory illness spread. It may also spread when a person touches a surface or object that has virus upon it and then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth or in other ways.
What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
The most common COVID-19 symptoms include fever and dry cough. They sometimes include sore throat, fatigue, shaking, muscle aches, chills, new loss of smell or taste, aches and pains, headaches, and shortness of breath.
How can I prevent myself from being infected?
Wash your hands frequently with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds.
- If soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizers containing at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Take simple measures to ensure cough and sneeze etiquette: cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with your hands.
- Routinely clean all frequently touched surfaces in your workspace and doorknobs.
- If you are sick, stay home and seek medical attention. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, please ask to be tested for the virus.
It’s important to protect yourself and protect others too.
