Cases of coronavirus have been detected in Florida including Pinellas County. We as a whole, with our Federal, State, and local Government agencies are taking prompt action to decrease the spread of the virus, and we need
residents to help. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, practice safe social distancing of six feet or more, and stay home if you are sick.
What should you do if you get sick?
Call your doctor: If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider for medical advice. Calling is better than showing up in person because it reduces the risk of infecting other patients and medical staff.
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 and notify the dispatcher that you have, or are being evaluated for COVID-19. If possible, put on a facemask before interacting with medical personnel.
Prevent the spread of COVID-19 if you are sick.
Stay home, except to get medical care:
- Avoid public areas
- Avoid public transportation
- Limit contact with others, especially shared surfaces
- Wear a facemask, if available
- Cover your coughs and sneezes
- Clean your hands often
