Resources & Recommendations

Our Current Recommendations

  1. Do not go to the emergency room unless it is essential. Emergency rooms need to be able to serve those with the most critical needs. If you are experiencing symptoms like cough, fever, and other respiratory problems, contact your regular health care provider for advice. In many cases, you will not need to be seen and home self-care will be your best option.

  2. Stay home if you are sick. Children should not be sent to school; adults should not go to work if they are ill.

  3. Practice optimal person hygiene habits, including coughing into tissue or the elbow and avoidance of touching your eyes, nose, or mouth unless your hands are freshly washed or sanitized. Washing your hands before touching and eating food is also important.

  4. Stay away from people who are ill, especially if you are 60 years of age or older or have an underlying health condition such as diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, or a weakened immune system.

  5. Stay informed. Information is changing frequently. Check the Jefferson Public Health Website (Jeffersoncountypublichealth.org), Washington State Department of Health (doh.wa.gov), and Public Health-Seattle King County (kingcounty.gov/COVID) on a daily basis for updates.
