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.
This is why you must stay in isolation. 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. Have food dropped of at your door if possible. If you need to go into parts of your home that are shared spaces, wear a mask at all times. If you use a common space such as a bathroom or kitchen, you should wipe down all surfaces with a cleaning product after you use it.
You must stay in isolation even if you feel better. Do not end your isolation until you are told it is safe to do so.
It will be safe for you to end isolation when:
When to Get Medical Help: If you experience a worsening of symptoms and/or find it difficult to breathe, you should seek medical care. It is important that you call ahead to indicate that you are positive for COVID-19; they will have you go to a special entrance. If you need to call 911, be sure to indicate that you need medical care but that you are positive for COVID-19 and are in isolation at your home. They will send a special ambulance that will safely transport you to the hospital.
The La Crosse County Health Department wishes you a speedy recovery. Thank you for doing your part to keep our community safe.
