Pick up an extra kit to keep in your home when needed!

How has COVID-19 changed respiratory disease season?

  • Stay home when sick
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your shirt sleeve, not your hands
  • Wash your hands often

Everyday Prevention Measures

  • Avoid touching face with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with others
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs and mobile devices

COVID-19 & RESPIRATORY ILLNESSES

  • Prior to COVID-19: many hospitalizations due to respiratory illnesses cause by flu and RSV.
  • 2020-2021 and 2021-2022: flu and RSV were significantly lower than usual.
  • Now, we are seeing COVID-19, flu, and RSV all being spread simultaneously and at high levels.

Key Times to Test:

  • If you are only going to take a single test, a PCR test will provide a more reliable negative test result.
  • If you use an antigen test, a positive result is reliable, but a negative test is not always accurate.
  • If your antigen test is negative, take another antigen test after 48 hours or take a PCR test as soon as you can.

There are effective vaccines and antiviral treatments for COVID-19 and flu and immunizations for RSV along with other simple ways to protect yourself and loved ones from COVID-19, Flu, and RSV.
