The best way to protect yourself from contracting COVID-19 is by using the same daily habits that help prevent the spread of many viruses, including the common cold and the flu. To help prevent the spread of disease always:
It’s important to remember if you haven’t traveled to an infected region as defined by the CDC or been in close contact with someone known to have the virus, your risk of contracting COVID-2019 is very low. However, the CDC recommends if you’ve traveled to an infected region within the last 14 days or were in close contact with someone confirmed to have the infection and begin to feel sick with fever, cough, or shortness of breath, seek medical care. Before you go to the doctor, call ahead and let them know about your travel and symptoms to limit potential exposure to others and avoid spreading the virus.
Please wear a mask in our facilities and around other people if you have a fever, are coughing, sneezing, have a runny nose, or are having difficulty breathing. Please also consider using Intermountain’s Connect Care service on your smartphone, tablet, or computer to connect with an Intermountain clinician and receive specific care recommendations.
