2. Use a hand sanitizer that has at least 60% alcohol.
3. Cough or sneeze into a tissue and throw it in the trash (clean your hands).
4. Avoid touching your eyes, ears, and mouth.

If you have been exposed to COVID-19, or if you are experiencing symptoms, self quarantine immediately and call for instructions: 1-877-435-8411 – Nurse Hotline. For questions about COVID-19, call 660.259.2440 day or night.
Please take this pandemic seriously.

You will be directed to a COVID-19 emergency response hotline for additional instruction. Live Well Centers are fully equipped to test for the flu. Please call one of our locations for an appointment.
