For Those Who Have Recently Traveled Internationally
If you recently traveled internationally to one of these affected geographic areas within the last 14 days, you should:
- Monitor your health for 14 days. Check and Record Everyday (CARE) Booklet helps you understand how to self-monitor your health and how to check your symptoms daily.
- Separate yourself from other people and animals in your home. Use a separate bathroom. Do not leave unless you are getting medical care. Do not go to work, school, or public areas, or use public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis. Other home isolation tips are available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
- If you develop any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, or shortness of breath, call ADPH’s Infectious Diseases & Outbreaks Division at 1-800-338-8374 immediately.
If the symptoms are so severe that the individual needs to go to the hospital, call 9-1-1. Tell the emergency responders that the individual recently traveled to an affected geographic area and have been potentially exposed to COVID-19.
