The best way to prevent COVID-19 is to avoid being exposed to the virus. Take the following steps to minimize your risk:

  • Stay home as much as possible.
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water is not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Distance yourself from others when in public, especially if you are a senior or have a medical condition that puts you in a high-risk category.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth mask when in public. Learn more about children and masks.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with an elbow or tissue. Throw the used tissue away and immediately wash your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily — including phones, keyboards, doorknobs, handles and light switches – with an EPA-registered disinfectant.

I have traveled recently. How do I know if a travel-related quarantine is recommended?

Currently, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) is recommending a 14-day mandatory home quarantine for people in Kansas who have:

  • Traveled to New York on or after March 15
  • Traveled to Illinois and New Jersey on or after March 23
  • Traveled to Louisiana and anywhere in Colorado on or after March 27.
  • Traveled to Connecticut on or after April 6.
  • Traveled to Massachusetts or Rhode Island on or after April 30.
  • Traveled on a cruise ship or river cruise on or after March 15. People who have previously been told by Public Health to quarantine because of their cruise ship travel should finish out their quarantine.
  • Traveled internationally on or after March 15. People who have previously been told by Public Health to quarantine because of their international travel to China, South Korea, Japan, Italy and Iran should finish out their quarantine.
  • Traveled to Eagle, Summit, Pitkin and Gunnison counties in Colorado in the week prior to March 15 or after.

Those who were potentially exposed to COVID-19 due to travel should monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19, including checking for a fever of 100.4 (F) or higher at least twice per day and monitoring for lower respiratory symptoms including cough or shortness of breath. Use the Daily Medical Monitoring Log for the 14-day quarantine period. If symptoms develop during that time, notify your healthcare provider.
