If you are at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19 because of your age or because you have a serious long-term health problem, it is extra important for you to take actions to reduce your risk of getting sick with the disease.

  • During a COVID-19 outbreak in your community, stay home as much as possible to further reduce your risk of being exposed.
  • Stock up on supplies
  • Avoid crowds as much as possible.
  • Wash your hands often.
  • Take everyday precautions to keep (6 ft) of space between yourself and others.
  • When you go out in public, keep away from others who are sick, limit close contact.

  • Contact your healthcare provider to ask about obtaining extra necessary medications to have on hand in case you need to stay home for a prolonged period of time.
  • If you cannot get extra medications, consider using mail-order for medications.
  • Be sure you have over-the-counter and RX medicines and medical supplies (tissues, etc.) to treat fever and other symptoms. Most people will be able to recover from COVID-19 at home.
  • Have enough household items and groceries on hand so that you will be prepared to stay at home for a period of time.
