If you are living with underlying conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, cancer, kidney disease, or a rare genetic disorder, it is important to first ensure you have enough of the necessary medications to manage your current condition. Next, you will need to take the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of infection that can possibly make these conditions worse.
Contact your healthcare provider, if you are exhibiting any of the following symptoms:
Epidemic: An infectious disease in communities that is widespread at a given time.
Pandemic: An infectious disease that is widespread across communities around the globe.
Virus: An infectious agent that takes control of healthy cells in the body. Viruses can multiply quickly and are most often cured by the body’s own immune system, vaccines, and specific antiviral drugs.
If you are considered high-risk for complications with COVID-19, it is important to take extra precautions to keep safe. High-risk people include those with diabetes, lung disease, heart disease, people who take medication to suppress the immune system, pregnant women, and older adults.
