In order to mitigate risk of spreading COVID-19, everyone is encouraged to take action to reduce the spread. Michiganders can follow basic measures such as:

  • wash your hands often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer;
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands;
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing;
  • avoid handshakes;
  • avoid contact with people who are sick; and
  • stay home when you are sick.

 

However, Michigan must take further action to avoid a rapid increase in COVID-19 cases in the state. The Michigan Department of Health and Human services recommends individuals take the following steps:

 

Individuals and families at home:

  • Learn about the signs and symptoms of COVID-19. Symptoms include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing.
  • If you have respiratory symptoms, STAY HOME WHEN YOU ARE SICK. Call your health care provider’s office in advance of your visit.
  • Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, like doorknobs, keyboards, cell phones, and light switches.
  • Communicate and reinforce best practices for washing hands and covering coughs and sneezes.
  • Be prepared if there is COVID-19 in your household or a disruption of daily activities in your community. For example, maintain a supply of medications, food, and other essentials in your house. Consider alternative shopping options such as curbside pickups or online deliveries.
  • Access services as much as possible online or by phone.

 

Individuals at risk of severe illness:

  • Individuals at risk of severe illness should stay at home and keep away from others who are sick, except in exceptional circumstances. Wash your hands often, particularly after contact with high-touch surfaces. Avoid crowds and closed-in settings with little air ventilation as much as possible. Avoid cruise travel and non-essential air travel.
  • Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, like doorknobs, keyboards, cell phones, and light switches.
  • In households with individuals at risk of severe illness, provide a protected space for those individuals and have healthy people conduct themselves as if they were a significant risk to those individuals. For example, healthy people should wash their hands before feeding or caring for an at-risk individual.
  • Have a plan for if you get sick, and stay in touch with others by phone or email.
  • Watch for symptoms and emergency warning signs that require immediate medical attention.
  • Family members and caregivers can support older adults by knowing what medications they are taking and ensuring there is an extra supply on hand.
  • Family members and caregivers can support older adults by monitoring food and other necessary medical supplies (e.g., oxygen, incontinence, dialysis, and wound care supplies) and by creating a back-up plan for securing those essentials if they run out.
