Coronavirus – What to do?

There is no vaccine for coronavirus. To help prevent a coronavirus infection, we follow the same rule as we do to avoid common cold:

  • Clean your hands with soap and warm water or with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Keep your hands and fingers away from eyes, nose and mouth
  • Avoid close contact with people who are infected

You treat a coronavirus infection the same way you treat a cold:

  • Get plenty of rest.
  • Drink fluids.
  • Take over-the-counter medicine for a sore throat and fever. Aspirin is not recommended to children or teens younger than 19; use ibuprofen or acetaminophen instead
  • A humidifier or steamy shower can also help ease a sore and scratchy throat.
