Mecklenburg County Health Department of Health Information:
Mecklenburg County Public Health(MCPH) considers novel coronavirus (COVID-19) to be a very serious public health threat and has declared a State of Emergency The declaration allows the County access to state and federal funds to offset the costs of fighting the pandemic. Follow the  North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) for statewide information.

What You Need To Know

An outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel, or new coronavirus (2019 Novel Coronavirus, or COVID-19) has been identified. The illness was first detected in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China but has since spread to other countries. Adults 65 and older and people with severe medical conditions including heart, lung, or kidney disease are most susceptible to the virus and should avoid crowds and stay home as much as possible.

The most up-to-date guidance and information are available on the CDC website

If you believe you have come into contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 (2019 Novel Coronavirus) here is how you can determine your risk of contracting the virus:

 Are you at an increased risk of infection?
The CDC has identified specific criteria to identify individuals who are at increased risk of infection. Please call your healthcare provider or the public health department at 980-314-9400:

  • If you are at increased risk due to travel or potential exposure and you are experiencing symptoms of fever, cough, or shortness of breath.
  • If you feel sick with fever, cough or difficulty breathing and you have had close contact with someone who is suspected to have Novel Coronavirus within 14 days of when your symptoms started.

Your healthcare professional will work with your local and state’s public health department to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.

 Prevention
MCPH recommends the public take the following steps to prevent the spread of ALL respiratory illnesses:

  • Washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Get a flu shot, it’s not too late. During this time of year, respiratory illnesses in North Carolina are often caused by infection with influenza or viruses that cause the common cold.

Still have questions? View Frequently Asked Questions or call the Mecklenburg County Public Health Hotline at 980-314-9400.

 

Stay Calm! Stay Safe! Be Well! Help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Avoid close contact with the sick.
  • Cover your cough/sneeze.
  • Wash/sanitize hands regularly.
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Disinfect surfaces/utensils regularly
  • Practice social distancing.
  • If you have a fever, cough, or shortness of breath,  call us at 704-393-7720, ext. 1021, 1022, 1045..
