“One of the first thing we highly advise, especially our travelers coming in, is to call the nearest health care provider or the 0-800-MOH-CARE and follow the advice given and stay home. You want to identify the spot or a room where the isolation will take place and you limit the contact with the healthy individuals. You want to stay away from seniors or persons with chronic conditions such as diabetes, lung problems, and another thing that you want to take a note of is monitoring if any flu-like symptoms show up during this fourteen days isolation whether that happen after your last encounter with an infected person or after arriving from an area where there is community spread of COVID-19. And some other tips you want to do while in isolation, you want to ensure that you have extra supplies on hand such as your medication, your masks, hand sanitizer, soap, food and continue everyday prevention measures such as washing your hands every day, frequently and thoroughly. Wear a mask if you have to leave your house to see your healthcare provider. If you have other persons visiting you, again, suggest the use of a mask and if they are within that six feet distance, use these masks to prevent the spread from human to human.”
