PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENT ___________________________________________________________ Health officials in the U.S. and the United Kingdom have released guidelines for handling COVID disease outbreaks after months of public health warnings that coronavirus could spread to the rest of the world.
Public health officials in London issued a similar statement Thursday.
The U.K. said it had also published a similar list of steps for treating the spread of COVID.
Here’s what you need to know about the CDC’s recommendations:What is COVID?
CDC scientists have identified three ways that COVID can spread:The first is through respiratory secretions, including aerosols that are inhaled, or breathed in, through the air.
These can be inhaled from infected air or through contact with a person who has the virus.
The second is through the mucus of the mouth, throat and airways.
The third is through direct contact with the eyes, eyes and mucous membranes of the face.
A respiratory secretion is a type of mucus that passes from one person to another.
It can be as small as a droplet or as large as a small amount of fluid.
The mucus can be produced in droplets or as small bubbles that are released from a mouth or nose.
The CDC is working to identify more ways to spread COVID by focusing on aerosols, a second type of infectious agent that can be spread through the respiratory secretes.
The first two ways of transmission are airborne and are not contagious.
COVID may be spread by inhaling or ingesting aerosols.
This is a way of spreading the virus via the respiratory system, not the eyes or the eyes and mouth.
A third way of transmission is direct contact.
This can occur through clothing or a touch.
The third way is via a person’s nose or throat.
COVI can be transmitted by inhaled or swallowed aerosols and can be passed to the nose or other parts of the body by contact.
How can I protect myself from the spread?
If you have a respiratory infection, such as COVID, contact your doctor or nurse immediately and get medical help if symptoms occur.
You may need to be hospitalized for treatment if you have symptoms or if there is a potential for transmission.
If you don’t have a COVID infection, get tested for COVID before returning to work, play sports or have activities that involve contact with people who have been exposed to COVID or are planning to come into contact with infected people.
If your doctor recommends that you get tested, the tests should be done within the next two weeks.
If symptoms of COVI occur while you are on duty, call the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) or call your local health department.
If there are other people who are coming into contact, make sure that you and everyone else who is present is vaccinated.
If the infection spreads through direct or indirect contact, the most important thing to do is isolate the contact and contact the person who you think may be at risk.
If you are unsure, call your doctor.
If all you have to do to control the spread is to stay home, you should do so, but if you need help staying home, seek help.
If a person has no symptoms or is unlikely to spread the virus, you may have to isolate the person.
You should also make sure you are not at risk of spreading COVID through direct, indirect or other contacts, and that the person is well-tolerated and has no known COVID infections.
If someone is in a public area and has symptoms, they should stay at home until they can be isolated and treated.
If symptoms occur, contact the hospital.
If the person has to be isolated, isolate them and do not contact them.
The CDC has released additional guidelines for isolating people.
You can also seek care at a hospital emergency room or other health care facility if symptoms appear.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued more than 800 recommendations for how to protect yourself from the spreading of COV-19.
Some of the recommendations are below.
CDC: New guidance for controlling the spread COVI.
COVID-18: New recommendations for prevention and control.
WHO: COVID guidance for health care workers and others.
NIH: COV vaccine guidance.
NICROS: Recommendations for preventing and controlling COVID in children and adults.
NCI: National Guideline for Infectious Disease Control-Coordinated Interventions.
PRIMAR: Preventing transmission and recovery of COVs.
TECHNICAL INTELLIGENCE: WHO guidance on prevention and prevention strategies.
PEDIATRIC SURGERY: CDC guidance on preventing the spread and recovery from COVID and its sequelae.
HIV/AIDS: Guidance on preventing and treating COVID symptoms. DENT
