A Message from the Georgia Department of Public Health

Whether it’s COVID-19, the flu or a cold, sick individuals should STAY HOME.  Staying home when sick is important for all respiratory illnesses but is critical during a public health emergency.  If you are experiencing a fever or cough, you should stay home to avoid spreading the illness and to allow yourself time to focus on recovering. This means not going to work, school or “stopping by the grocery store for just a minute.” This also means not using public transportation or ride sharing services.   For the full message Click Here
