How do I protect myself from influenza and COVID-19?

Influenza and COVID-19 are primarily transferred from person to person through respiratory droplets produced by an infected person’s cough or sneeze.

In order to best protect yourself, these simple steps can be followed:

  1. Wash your hands often with soap and water. Be thorough, and especially wash your hands after being in a public place, or after coughing or sneezing.
  2. Hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol may be used when soap and water are not readily available.
  3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  4. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

The CDC does recommend wearing a face mask even if you are not sick.

What can I do to limit sharing of any disease?

If you suspect you are ill, with any disease, these simple steps can be followed:

  1. Stay home if you are sick.
  2. Cover your mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Immediately wash your hands afterward with soap and water or hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol when soap and water are not available.
  3. Wear a facemask when you are near other people.
  4. Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.

What should I do if I think I have COVID-19?

Call your primary care physician. They can determine if you need testing and give you information about testing options.

Where can I get tested?

If you are experiencing non-life threatening symptoms or need to be tested due to exposure, please use the following processes and test sites:

  1. Call your primary care physician. Your doctor will assess your symptoms via phone and will send an order to the hospital. The hospital will contact you to schedule your test time at the TAH outpatient lab.
  2. Visit the Titusville Express Care or Meadville Express Care if you do not have a doctor.
  3. Patients experiencing severe or life-threatening symptoms should report to the ED.
