Facts about COVID-19:
- There is no data (as of now) about the risks of COVID-19 during conception and pregnancy.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website is the recommended source for up-to-date, detailed information about COVID-19.
- The vast majority of people who contract COVID-19 will not require hospitalization; symptoms are often mild enough that one can recover at home.
- If you have flu-like symptoms, please contact your primary care physician.
- The steps to protect yourself from COVID-19 are generally the same as those for the flu.
- The best prevention is through washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands. If you don’t have a tissue available, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes.
