The 78 MDG/Public Health recommends that any individual with flu like symptoms (listed below) stay home and not attend school/work to help prevent the spread of any sickness. Additionally, please ensure proper precautions are used such as social distancing, hand washing, and proper cough etiquette. Reported illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death for confirmed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases.
