New Mexico Coronavirus Resource Guide

How COVID-19 Spreads

Close contact can occur while caring for a patient, including:

  • Being within approximately 6 feet (2 meters) of a patient with COVID-19 for a prolonged period of time.
  • Having direct contact with infectious secretions from a patient with COVID-19. Infectious secretions may include sputum, serum, blood, and respiratory droplets.

High Risk

  • Older adults
  • People who have severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease
  • Healthcare professionals

Early data suggest older people are twice as likely to have serious COVID-19 illness. This may be because:

  • As people age, their immune systems change, making it harder for their body to fight off diseases and infection.
  • Many older adults are also more likely to have underlying health conditions that make it harder to cope with and recover from illness.

The best prevention for yourself, your family, and society are the same measures to prevent flu; wash your hands frequently and cough into your arm. 

Ways to prevent the spread of viruses 

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Use an alcohol-based (60%) hand sanitizer, if soap and water are not available
  • Cover your mouth and nose while coughing or sneezing
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth
  • Practice good health habits
  • You should not go to work and your child should not go to school if you or your child have a fever of 100.4 or greater. (Before you return to work or your child returns to school there should be no fever for 24 hours without medication)

What to Do if You Get Sick

  • Stay home and call your doctor
  • Call your healthcare provider and let them know about your symptoms. Tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help them take care of you and keep other people from getting infected or exposed.
  • If you are not sick enough to be hospitalized, you can recover at home. Follow CDC instructions for how to take care of yourself at home.
  • Know when to get emergency help
  • Get medical attention immediately if you have any of the emergency warning signs listed above.
