Symptoms of COVID-19 may appear 2 -14 days after exposure. Symptoms range from mild to severe. Refer to the table for a list of symptoms and the type of action you should take based on your symptoms.
Please remember that emergency responders can not diagnose in the field. All individuals arriving at the ER are treated first - on the severity of their symptoms and second - on the order of arrival.
Current understanding about how COVID-19 spreads is largely based on what is known about similar coronaviruses. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. COVID-19 can spread:
A person may get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their mouth, nose or eyes. Surface or object exposure is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19, so the best way to protect yourself from illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus. Everyday preventative actions can help mitigate the spread of respiratory viruses including:
Yes, all persons 10 years or older are required to wear a face mask or covering per Executive Order GA 29.
No, if you are eating, drinking or seated for dining consumption a mask is not required.
No, if wearing a mask or face covering poses a significant mental or physical health risk you are not required to wear one.
A sanitation station should include resources that allow patrons to sanitize their hands and/or shopping carts/baskets prior to being served. Resources can include, but aren’t limited to, a handwashing station, hand sanitizer, diluted household bleach solutions, alcohol solutions with at least 70% alcohol, and most common EPA-registered household disinfectants should be effective.
The City of McKinney uses commercial-grade cleaners and sanitizers at its facilities that meet or exceed the CDC’s recommended guidelines and are proven at killing COVID-19. All high-touch surfaces in heavily trafficked areas of our facilities are routinely cleaned and disinfected.
