I’m older and have a chronic condition, although I feel fine right now. I want to protect myself. Should I be going to work?

FAQ Answer

It’s important to discuss with your health care provider about your risk of complications if you would also acquire coronavirus (COVID-19). Decisions between your health care provider and your employer could help you decide what is best for your health.

All people should continue to follow social distancing guidance, good handwashing hygiene and staying home if sick. Any person with a fever and/or respiratory symptoms who was not tested, should stay home until at least 3 days (72 hours) have passed since recovery (fever-free without the use of fever-reducing medications) and improvement in respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); and at least 7 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
