Advice For The Public

When & how to use masksMyth-bustersAdvice for health workersGetting workplace ready

Necessary protective measures against the new Coronavirus  

Stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, available on the WHO website, and through your national and local public health authority. COVID-19 is still affecting most people in China with some outbreaks in other countries. Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others. Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:

Wash your hands frequently

Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.

Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.

Maintain social distancing

Maintain at least 1 meter (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth

Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose, or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.

Practice respiratory hygiene

Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.

Why? Droplets spread the virus. By following good respiratory hygiene, you protect the people around you from illnesses such as cold, flu, and COVID-19.

If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early

Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention, and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.

Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to direct you to the right health facility quickly. This will also protect you and help prevent the spread of viruses and other infections.

On March 11th, 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19, a novel (new) coronavirus, a pandemic.   

"SARS-CoV-2", and other coronaviruses are part of an extensive family of viruses that are commonly found among people and a variety of animal species. And although it's rare for these viruses to cross from animals to humans, there have been multiple cases of widespread disease including Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) 

COVID-19: Pausing a Pandemic

Urgent Care

The Urgent Care Association (UCA), College of Urgent Care Medicine® (CUCM), and the Urgent Care Foundation (UCF) are working together to better understand and provide resources for our members and our industry regarding the novel (new) coronavirus COVID-19

<<< PLEASE NOTE: This is a rapidly evolving and developing situation. Please refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and your local health department for the most up to date information. >>>

The novel (new) coronavirus (COVID-19) was discovered in late December 2019 and is beginning to spread around the world. Below you will find several links and resources to assist in education and awareness for clinicians, operators and patients:

Do you have questions or requests? Fill out the form below.


  • Caused by one virus, the novel 2019 Coronavirus,  now called severe acute respiratory syndrome Coronavirus 2, or SARS-COV-2.



  • Caused by any of several different types and strains of influenza viruses.


Both cause fever, cough, body aches, fatigue, sometimes vomiting and diarrhea. 

Can be mild or severe, even fatal in rare cases. 

Can result in pneumonia.

Both can be spread from person to person through droplets in the air from an infected person coughing, sneezing, or talking.

Treatment / Prevention:
Neither virus is treatable with antibiotics, which only work on bacterial infections.  

Both may be prevented by frequent, thorough hand washing, coughing into the crook of your elbow, staying home when sick, and limiting contact with infected people.

Information by MyTelemedicine -


While both the flu and COVID-19 may be transmitted in similar ways, there is also a possible difference: COVID-19 might be spread through the airborne route, meaning that tiny droplets remaining in the air could cause disease in others even after the ill person is no longer near.  

COVID-19: No vaccine is available at this time, though it is in progress.

Flu: A vaccine is available and effective to prevent some of the most dangerous types or to reduce the severity of the flu.  

COVID-19: 2-14 after exposure

Flu: 2 days after exposure

Before seeking care, please call the healthcare facility. Hours of operation and services provided may vary due to special circumstances such as weather conditions or the COVID 19 Pandemic.
