“These simple measures include handwashing, physical distancing, and the wearing of face masks that cover your nose and mouth, but not the entire face. I also remind you to contact the Medical Hotline at 852-7650 to be assessed by a health professional if you experience any symptoms related to COVID-19. Common symptoms include – fever, cough, headache, fatigue, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, muscle aches, or difficulty breathing,” he urged.
