_________________________________________________________________________

Harrison County Hospital recommends the following:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • For those at higher risk it is recommended that you avoid crowds and observe social distancing
  • Wash your hands frequently at least 20 seconds with soap and water
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Cover cough/sneeze with a tissue and then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Clean/disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces regularly
  • Only go to the Emergency Room when symptoms indicate, not for testing

What to Do If You Think You’re Sick

Call your healthcare professional if you feel sick with fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you live in or have recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19.

If you are worried about whether you have COVID-19, your decision on whether to seek medical care should not change just because of this new virus. Unlike the flu, your doctor cannot automatically test you for COVID-19 to rule it out as the cause of your illness. If you’re feeling ill, but otherwise would not have sought medical care, it’s best for you to stay at home.
