What to do if you’re sick with COVID-19 and how Bio-One of Orange specialists can help you

As COVID-19 cases keep rapidly increasing, people may feel uncertain about what to do if they get sick with the virus. If you are having flu-like symptoms or you suspect you may be sick with COVID-19, the best and most recommended way to diagnose is by testing. But, what are the recommendations for people who have tested positive for COVID-19?

 

CDC is constantly monitoring and updating information regarding COVID-19 and its multiple variants, especially the latest Omicron variant, which, though it has been reported to be more contagious than the original SARS-CoV-2 virus, there is not enough information to compare it against the Delta variant. It was also reported that people who were previously infected with the original SARS-CoV-2 virus are at risk of reinfection.

 

Fortunately, current vaccines are expected to protect people from severe symptoms, hospitalization, and even death caused by the latest Omicron variant. COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, you can learn how they work by reading CDC’s article on current vaccines against COVID-19, so, if you haven’t, find a place near you and follow the safety guidelines until you’re fully protected.

Bio-One of Orange specialists are prepared to clean and disinfect houses and properties from COVID-19 virus to minimize the risk of exposure and spread.

In indoor spaces, high-touch and traffic areas and items should be disinfected to minimize the risk of exposure and spread of the COVID-19 virus. Bio-One of Orange specializes in COVID-19 cleaning and disinfection. Whether it’s a public location, business, or a house where a family member might be sick with COVID-19, or they were informed about being in contact with a person who recently got sick with COVID-19, our technicians use EPA-approved chemicals and disinfectants to safely restore your property or business.

 

If you’re sick with COVID-19, you suspect you may be sick with COVID-19, or you have had contact with someone who recently got sick with COVID-19, here are some recommendations on how to prevent the spread of the virus. Remember, these guidelines and recommendations are ways to protect you, your community, and the people around you.

 

 

  • Stay at home and take care of yourself: In most cases, people sick with COVID-19 can recover at home if the symptoms are not severe, and especially if they were vaccinated. Still, avoid visiting public areas like grocery store, supermarkets, parks. If anything, you should leave home if you need medical assistante, and we recommend that you let your doctor know about the symptoms or COVID-19 diagnose for them to take the necessary precautions.

  • Monitor your symptoms and get tested: COVID-19 and the Influenza virus (flu) share common symptoms, as they’re contagious respiratory diseases, although COVID-19 is more contagious. If you have a tested positive for COVID-19 watch out for fever, shortness of breath, fatigue, and difficulty with staying up on your feet. If you don’t have a diagnose, the first thing you have to do is get tested. If you’re showing any of the symptoms mentioned above, call 911 for emergency assitance. 

 

  • Wear a mask, even if you’re at home: You should wear a mask to protect your family, pets, and anyone who lives in the property, at least while you’re dealing with the illness. If you live alone, you don’t need to wear a mask. Check CDC’s Guidance for wearing masks for more information.

 

  • Avoid sharing personal items: Avoid sharing plates, dishes, cups, eating utensils, towels, and other personal belongings.

Bio-One of Orange works for residential and commercial properties to thoroughly clean and disinfect areas that may have been contaminated with the COVID-19 virus.

  • Keep hygiene levels at maximum, especially in high-touch and traffic areas: Constantly wash your hands with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol) especially after blowing your nose, touching your face, before and after meals, etc. You should clean the bedroom (or the room where you’re staying while you’re sick) and bathroom at least once a day, using EPA-approved disinfectants.

 

If you’re unable to clean these areas and you need help from a caregiver or specialists, they should follow strict guidelines to protect themselves and prevent the spread of the virus. People who got sick with COVID-19 and had symptoms should isolate for at least five days. Only if you don’t have fever symptoms and you stopped using medication, should it be safe for you to end isolation.
