COVID-19 Resources

Health

The most up-to-date and relevant health resources can be found on the CDC website. Please refer to their site when seeking COVID-19 information and revisit often for updates.

MMA community members are encouraged to follow these CDC guidelines regarding general hygiene and good health:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.

Watch for symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Sore throat (in some patients)

If you are sick, to keep from spreading respiratory illness to others, you should:

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

If you have traveled out of state recently or have been exposed to someone diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus and get sick with fever (100.4 F or higher) or cough, or have trouble breathing:

  • Seek medical care. Call ahead before visiting the Health Center (326-2305), your doctor’s office, or an emergency room. Medical staff will ask you questions and properly prepare for your arrival.
  • Tell your health care provider about your recent travel and your symptoms.
  • Avoid contact with others.
