COVID-19 Guide for the General Public

My colleagues have been maintaining a living document with practical COVID-19 information: find it here. Please share with family and friends.

TL; DR

  1. Stay away from people even if you feel well (aka “social distancing”).
  2. If you think you contracted the virus, stay home and don’t go to the ER unless you can’t breathe, feel faint, can’t keep fluids down.
  3. Take acetaminophen (also known as Tylenol) for fever/aches
  4. Exercising by yourself outside is ok.
  5. Bring food/supplies to elderly family members so they can avoid people–drop off supplies without direct contact.
