HOW IT SPREADS:

The virus that causes COVID-19 is spreading from person-to-person. Someone who is actively sick with COVID-19 can spread the illness to others. That is why CDC recommends that these patients be isolated either in the hospital or at home (depending on how sick they are) until they are better and no longer pose a risk of infecting others. Gov. Phil Murphy issued a new order requiring customers and employees wear face masks while inside essential businesses. The CDC recommends that every American wear a face mask while in public. There is currently no vaccine for COVID-19. While the best way to prevent illness is to avoid virus exposure, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention always recommends taking preventive actions to contain the spread of viruses.

This includes:

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

COPING WITH COVID-19 STRESS:

  • From the New Jersey Department of Health:
  • Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news/social media
  • Take deep breaths, stretch, meditate
  • Eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly
  • Get plenty of sleep; avoid alcohol/ drugs
  • Do things you enjoy like baking or walking the dog
