Practice cough etiquette and frequent hand washing. Here's a hand washing guide by the CDC.
Prevention tips:
          Remember, hand washing is the #1 best practice for the prevention of the spread of disease.
          Second, avoid touching your face - especially your mouth, nose, or eyes.
          Third, cover your cough.
          Fourth, avoid ill people or stay away from healthy people if you are ill yourself.
          Finally, keep frequently touched surfaces clean.
 
If you are experiencing symptoms, contact the Community Hospital of Anaconda at 406-563-8500. It is best to manage symptoms at home. If you feel that you need emergency care, call ahead.
  • If you are short of breath, seek medical attention.
  • A fever of 104oF or greater is dangerously high and should be assessed by a healthcare provider. 
 
Wellness tips:
          Manage fever, headache, and body aches associated with COVID-19 with medications such as acetaminophen and aim to drink at least half your body weight in ounces of water per day (weight in pounds divided by two equals ounces per day; e.g., if a person weighs 130 lbs = 65 oz water per day). Avoid refined sugars and sugar additives (high fructose corn syrup, white sugar, maltose, fructose, etc.) - they are immunosuppressants. 
 
Contact the local Public Health Department at 406-563-7863 with any questions regarding exposure, social distancing, self quarantine, or preparedness planning.
