Coronavirus (COVID-19)

How is it spread?

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).

  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

  • It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

  • Exposure through recent travel, as well as contact with someone with confirmed

    COVID-19. (Please refer to the CDC for travel recommendations and high-risk areas.)

    What are the symptoms?

  • Fever

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath

    How can I prevent myself from getting COVID-19?

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe

  • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.

Testing for COVID-19 cannot be done at our office. Please call Massachusetts Department of Public Health at 617-983-6800 for a testing site near you.
