What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to other respiratory illnesses, such as the common cold and flu. The most common of these symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

How can I protect myself and others?

The best prevention for COVID-19, the flu and colds, is to practice proper handwashing and respiratory etiquette. Help stop the spread of viruses by:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Clean surfaces frequently, including countertops, light switches, cell phones and other frequently touched items.
  • If you are sick, stay home and avoid contact with others.

Visiting The Doctor

If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms and you have recently visited a location where Coronavirus cases exist, then please call your provider before making an office visit.

If you have been tested for COVID-19, please let us know by emailing covid19questions@mennohaven.org or by contacting Tracey Ecelberger or Melissa Rabon *Residents of Menno Haven Only
