Listed below are some common questions and answers about the virus and web-links for anyone looking for more information.

 

Common Questions: 

 

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

Patients with COVID-19 have had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms including:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

 

How can I protect myself?

You can protect yourself by:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. 
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 
  • Stay home when you are sick. 
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow or use a tissue to cover it, then throw the tissue in the trash. 
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. 

 

How is COVID-19 testing conducted? Is any testing being conducted for Austin/Travis County individuals?

A Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) lab in Austin is now capable of completing COVID-19 testing. APH currently has one or more Persons Under Investigation, which means testing is in-progress. These are not confirmed cases.

Individuals who experience symptoms of lower respiratory illness (i.e. cough, shortness of breath) should consult with their health care provider who will determine if there is another plausible diagnosis (i.e. influenza). Your local health care provider will consult with Austin Public Health to collect specimens for testing by the CDC or a Texas DSHS lab if it is deemed the patient meets the case definition.

 

 

What should I do if I think I have COVID-19?

If you are experiencing symptoms including fever, cough, and shortness of breath, please contact your health care provider. It is important to call before going into a clinic, urgent care, or emergency department, to prevent any potential spread.

People with no insurance and no established provider experiencing coronavirus-like symptoms should call CommUnityCare at 512-978-9015. CommUnityCare will triage people over the phone and send them to the appropriate location. We are following CDC rapid-response protocols and asking people with no established provider to call the number above rather than come in to prevent any potential spread of the virus.

 

What are steps to help prevent the spread of illnesses such as flu and COVID-19 if you are sick?

If you are sick with COVID-19 or suspect you are infected with COVID-19 or any other respiratory illness follow the steps below to help prevent the disease from spreading to people in your home and community.

  • Stay at home until instructed to leave: Patients with confirmed COVID-19 should remain under home isolation precautions until the risk of secondary transmission to others is thought to be low.
  • Call ahead before visiting your doctor: If you have a medical appointment, call the healthcare provider and tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the healthcare provider’s office take steps to keep other people from getting infected or exposed.
  • Monitor your symptoms and seek prompt medical attention if your illness is worsening.
  • Avoid public areas: Do not go to work, school, or public areas.
  • Avoid public transportation: Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
  • Keep family separated: Separate yourself from other people and in your home, including loved ones.
  • Stay away from others: As much as possible, you should stay in a specific room and away from other people in your home. Also, you should use a separate bathroom, if available.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes: Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw used tissues in a lined trash can.
  • Wash hands: Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or, if soap and water are not available, clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching: Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Practice routine cleaning of high tough surfaces: High touch surfaces include counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets, and bedside tables.

 

 

Are some people at higher risk for severe infection?

Yes. Similar to influenza, those who are over the age of 70 and/or have underlying health conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, chronic lung disease, and diabetes are at greater risk for severe disease and complications from COVID-19.
