Get tested

Learning to recognize the symptoms of COVID-19 is an important first step in protecting yourself and your family from the virus.

If you have symptoms or have been told that you're a close contact of a positive case, get tested. Click here for testing locations in Oconto and surrounding counties.

Stay home except to get medical care

It is important that those who have tested positive remain in their homes and away from other people to avoid spreading the virus.

Separate yourself from other people and pets in your home

As much as possible, stay in a specific room and do not allow others in the room.  Use a separate bathroom if one is available.  Wear a mask if you must be around others.

Monitor your symptoms

Follow instructions from your doctor and health department.  If you have any emergency signs such as trouble breathing, persistent chest pain or pressure, new confusion, bluish lips or face, or cannot wake up/stay awake, call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest emergency room.

Stop the spread of germs

Cover your coughs and sneezes, wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds with soap and water, do not share household items like dishes and towels, and clean/disinfect high touch surfaces in your sick room and bathroom such as doorknobs, phone, remote control, etc.
