Please use the medical, economic and community resources on this page to stay up to date on this evolving public health crisis.

If you feel sick with fever, cough, or have shortness of breath (see symptoms), and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you live in or have recently traveled to an area affected by COVID-19, you should:

 

  • Avoid contact with others

  • Do not travel while sick

  • 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 or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol immediately after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose

  • Call your health care professional. Your healthcare provider will then be able to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19

  • If you don't have insurance or a current healthcare provider: you can search for a community health center near you at the Arizona Association of Community Health Centers or call 2-1-1 to talk to a healthcare professional

Flattening the Coronavirus Curve

The more we slow down the spread of the virus by properly washing our hands, self-isolating when we're sick, and by physically distancing (avoiding in-person gatherings and physical contact with other people when possible), the less likely we are to overwhelm our hospitals and healthcare system.

The image below shows how collective community actions like those mentioned above, can keep the daily number of coronavirus cases at a manageable level for medical providers and healthcare workers.
