How Does COVID-19 Spread: COVID-19 is spread from one person to another through body fluids like saliva that come out of your mouth and nose when breathing, talking, singing, coughing or sneezing. It is very easy to spread, which makes it very important that you stay away from other people while you get better.
Isolation means that you do not leave you house, unless you need medical care. If you live with other people, you should stay away from them as much as possible. You must stay in isolation even if you feel better. Do NOT end your isolation until: at least 10 days have passed since your symptoms began (or your test was conducted if you have not had symptoms), AND You have had no fever for 24 hours without using medication that would reduce the fever, such as tylenol or advil, AND Any other symptoms have been improved for 24 hours without using medication that would improve them.

When to Get Medical Help: If you experience a worsening of symptoms and/or find it difficult to breathe, you should seek medical care. Talk with our docotor or call 911 if emergency help is needed. If you need to leave your home for medical care, wear a mask and make sure the facility you are visiting knows you are positive for COVID-19 so they can take the appropriate protectvie meaures.
The City of De Pere Health Department wishes you a speedy recovery. Thank you for doing your part to keep our community safe.
