If you're caring for someone, be sure visitors take care to avoid causing any extra risk to you or them - keep hand sanitizer by the door or ask visitors to wash their hands. Lávate bien las manos y usa un desinfectante para manos antes y después de tocar o alimentar a alguien o incluso después de tocar dispositivos o equipos de movilidad.

Llama a tu médico si tienes fiebre, tos o dificultad para respirar. Dile que has estado en contacto con una persona que tiene COVID-19 o que vives o has estado en una zona donde se ha propagado el virus.
