Important Facts about COVID-19

#1: It’s a virus.  Therefore, there is no medication you can take to treat it, stay home and take care of yourself like you would with any other cold or flu.

#2: If you are sick, no matter what virus you may have (don’t forget the seasonal flu is going around too), you should stay home to prevent spreading it to others.

#3: Call the doctor or your local emergency room if you are having any breathing difficulties—DO NOT just show up at your doctor’s office without talking to them FIRST!!

#4: Your local health departments are not providing testing, treatment or screenings—these must all be done by a doctor.

COVID-19 Info

In light of the ongoing coverage of this particular virus, we need to keep in mind a few things:

  • COVID-19 is a virus—there is no treatment for it other than staying home and treating it like you would any other virus, like the flu or a cold

  • COVID-19 has a whole range of severity—not everyone who gets COVID-19 has a serious illness and many have an uncomplicated recovery

  • COVID-19 can become a serious issue for certain people in our population—the elderly and those with other health conditions. Limiting time out and about is totally appropriate for these groups.

  • COVID-19 only becomes a serious health issue when it causes breathing problems—again, not everyone gets very ill with this virus (as is true with all viruses), so if you develop breathing problems, this would be a reason to contact your doctor or an emergency room (call first).

  • COVID-19 transmission can be greatly reduced by doing the same things we’ve always recommended you do to keep from getting the season flu:don’t stand close to other people, wash your hands, cover your cough, don’t touch your face, and if you’re sick please stay home.

What about cleaning?

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces with bleach solution (1/4 cup bleach + 4 cups water) or 70% rubbing alcohol.  If using bleach solution, the bleach begins to degrade quickly so you will need to make a new batch each time.  Don’t forget to disinfect doorknobs, light switches and phone receivers.

Emergency Preparedness

The Daviess County Health Department participates in emergency planning and preparedness to effectively respond to public health threats. The health department emergency planning team has prepared a public health plan focusing on surveillance, epidemiology capacity, lab, communications, terrorist threats, education, training, risk communication, and continued services.

We partner with The Local Emergency Planning Commission to assess and plan for natural as well as man-made disasters.  For more information about community, family emergency planning and volunteer information visit http://health.mo.gov/emergencies/index.php or call the health department.
