How To Remain Safe During COVID-19 And If You Get Infected

If you receive a positive COVID-19 test result, seek medical attention immediately. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 after being in contact with a positive case, seek medical attention, and get tested. Testing facilities offer thorough testing. All you have to do is to make an appointment.

No Symptoms

If you do not have symptoms, but you know or suspect that you have been in contact with a positive case, seek medical attention. It’s better to prevent it rather than to expose yourself. Do not wait for the situation to get worse before seeking medical attention to rule out any illness or treat it in time, but if you are still unsure, it is better to get tested.

The Contagion

The contagion occurs mainly when being in physical proximity of an infected person, through the respiratory droplets produced by the sick person when coughing or sneezing. Anyone with COVID-19 can infect one or many people even if they have no symptoms: There is evidence that the virus can spread even before any symptoms appear. The likelihood of contagion increases when you are close to people and do not maintain a distance of at least 2 meters (6 feet).  You can also get it by touching an infected surface or object and then touching your face, nose, or mouth.

Additional Steps To Take

If you are sick with COVID-19, the virus spreads easily between people who live in the same house, but there are ways to reduce the risks. If possible, you should stay in a room separated from others and use a separate bathroom. You should also avoid being in the same room as other people and/or pets. Designate only one person to care for you once you show symptoms of COVID-19. Ask the person to leave food outside the room by the door and to wash hands when the plate is picked up and dropped off.

Use the phone or computer to communicate with others. Do not share personal items such as towels, dishes, and other utensils. Wash your hands often, after cleaning, before and after eating, and after using the bathroom. If you absolutely must be around others in the house, wear a mask and ask them to wear it too Open windows to let in the fresh air, but avoid using fans or air conditioners that circulate the air and would spread the infecting respiratory droplets of Covid-19.
