Tips for the Flu Season

What is Portage County doing to respond to 2019 novel Coronavirus?

       

Ohio Department of Health Opens Call Center to Help With COVID-19 Response

Ohio Department of Health Opens Call Center to Help With COVID-19 Response
1-833-4-ASK-ODH Open Seven Days a Week

(COLUMBUS, Ohio)— Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton, MD, MPH, today announced the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) has opened a call center to answer questions regarding coronavirus (COVID-19). The call center will be open 7 days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and can be reached at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634).


Call center staff includes licensed nurses and infectious disease experts. They will be available to answer questions and provide accurate information about COVID-19, the risk to the public, and the state’s response.


The number of potential cases and the results of testing are regularly updated every weekday at coronavirus.ohio.gov.


While the general risk to the public in Ohio is still considered low, it is important to continue to follow standard precautions to prevent the spread of infectious disease. To prevent the spread of any virus including novel coronavirus, practice these preventative measures:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

Additional information and guidance on COVID-19 is available at ODH’s new website, coronavirus.ohio.gov.



Tips for Keeping Yourself and Others Healthy

TIPS FOR KEEPING YOURSELF AND OTHERS HEALTHY:

  • Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue to cover coughs and sneezes, then dispose of the tissue. When a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces or objects. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. Find additional CDC resources on how to clean and disinfect schools.
  • Wash hands for 20 seconds. Washing hands often under clean, running water can help prevent the spread of germs. For more guidance see the CDC: When and How to Wash Your Hands. If you cannot wash your hands, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60-95% alcohol.

Novel Coronavirus

General Information and Precautions

* Currently, you are only at risk if you (1) are displaying symptoms; and (2) have traveled to China in the 14 days before feeling sick or have been in contact with someone who has confirmed COVID-19. By and large, travel history is key.

* People who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 have reported symptoms including fever, cough, and difficulty breathing that may appear in as few as two days or as many as 14 days after exposure to the virus. At this point you are more likely to catch the flu or a common cold, which both show some of the same symptoms.

* ODH recommends precautions used for reducing the risk of infection for other illnesses, such as flu. Encourage staff, children, and families to follow these precautions at all times.

* Frequently wash your hands for 20 seconds or more with soapy water. If unavailable, use hand sanitizer.

* Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.

* Avoid contact with people who are sick.

* Stay home when you are sick (except to visit a health care professional) and avoid contact with others.

* Cover your mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.

* Get adequate sleep and eat well-balanced meals to ensure a healthy immune system.
