Coronavirus Information

COVID-19: What Residents Should Know


How is COVID-19 Spread?

COVID-19 is commonly spread through respiratory droplets that are produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

COVID-19 also spreads between two people who are in close contact with one another, including one who is caring for an infected person.

 

What are the commonly reported symptoms of COVID-19?

Fever (100.4°F or higher)

Cough

Shortness of breath

 

How may I protect myself and others from COVID-19 and other respiratory infections? 

If you are sick, stay home from work or school.

Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing a minimum of 60% alcohol.

When coughing or sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your upper sleeve (not your hands).

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Avoid handshakes and try an elbow bump instead.

Practice good health habits.

Get a flu shot to prevent the flu if you have not already done so this season.


Message From the Morris County Health Department

The Morris County Office of Emergency Management and Office of Health Management, in coordination with officials in all 39 Morris County towns, school districts, and major healthcare providers, are closely monitoring the situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Officials across the county are working in concert with the state Department of Health and federal agencies to ensure they have the latest information to best deal with the virus. In particular, county officials are working closely with Atlantic Health and Saint Clare’s Health.

In addition, county OEM officials urge residents not to be alarmed if they see first responders wearing high levels of protective gear, such as masks, hoods, suits and respirators. Out of an abundance of caution, they may wear this gear for the safety of the patient and fellow responders.
