Transcript

"When out of the room or when others are around, the infected person should wear a face mask. This mask should be worn also in vehicles. If you are infected, never share dishes, drinking glasses, cups, eating utensils, towels, or bedding of other people, or pets, in your home. After you've used these items, wash them thoroughly with soap and water. Isolation can usually end if at least seven days have passed and your symptoms have been gone for at least three full days, without taking any medication to reduce a fever. This means that you no longer have a fever even when you don't take any acetaminophen or Tylenol, ibuprofen or Advil or Motrin or Neproxin or [?]. This includes combination cold flu medications that contain these ingredients. As an example, assume you or your household member got sick on a Sunday. You or the infected person might feel completely better, but the following Sunday, all your symptoms are gone. No more fever or cough. This does not mean ending isolation. Instead, you need to continue quarantining for three more days, the Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday after your symptoms end, thus leaving home isolation on Thursday. Although you can now interact more freely with other people. Follow your local area's guidance on what activities are acceptable and which businesses are still open to for you to frequent. Although keep in mind that this is a general guideline, and if you take certain medications or have other health conditions that affect your immune system, you should contact your doctor. Your home isolation may be longer."
