What Can the Public Do?

As with all illnesses, it is important to take steps to prevent the spread of germs:

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve while coughing or sneezing
  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Stay home if you are sick
  • If using hand sanitizer, ensure it contains at least 60% alcohol

If you are sick and have symptoms such as a cough and fever, it is recommended that you stay at home and do not attend public gatherings or go to work/school.  If you are not sick you should still practice good hand hygiene and avoid sick people.

We encourage residents to call the NJ COVID-19 Hotline at 1-800-222-1222 if they have general questions about novel coronavirus. The hotline is open 24/7 and has multi-language capacity. Callers who need medical advice should contact their health care provider.

It is important to have factual, up-to-date information on novel coronavirus. Be certain to get information from trusted and credible sources, such as the CDC, NJDOH, your local health department and the 24/7 Hotline.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has created a Coronavirus 19 Situation Summary and are providing live updates to their page which can be found at cdc.gov/coronavirus.

The World Health Organization offers best protective measures against the new coronavirus.
