The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
Spread from contact with infected surfaces or objects
It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
Reported illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death for confirmed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases.
These types of symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure:
Shortness of breath
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.1. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.If soap and water are
not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
2. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
4. Stay home when you are sick and keep your children at home when they are sick.
5. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
6. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray
7. It is important to call ahead before going to see a doctor or emergency room to prevent the spread
of illness. Tell them your symptoms and that you suspect you were exposed to someone with
COVID-19 or had recent travel to a country that is experiencing community spread.
If you have symptoms including a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, call your primary care provider. Do not go to the doctor without calling first.
Wyoming residents with questions about COVID-19 may send an email to email@example.com
Healthcare providers with coronavirus-related questions about specific patients should call 1-888-996-9104 for guidance.
If you recently traveled to a place experiencing COVID-19 transmission AND you feel sick, stay home and call your doctor immediately.
If you are returning to America from a country with COVID-19 transmissions, travelers are given information on protecting themselves and their communities. If the person is returning from a country deemed a high risk, they are asked to self-quarantine for 14 days.
Do not go to the doctor without calling first
Call ahead to a healthcare professional if you develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing, and have been in close contact with a person known to have the coronavirus or if you live in or have recently traveled to an area with ongoing spread. Tell your healthcare professional about your recent travel or contact. Your healthcare professional will work with necessary partners to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
