This is an important message from the City of Trenton.
Greetings on behalf of Mayor Reed Gusciora and the Department of Health & Human Services.
We have entered the Second Wave of COVID-19 and infections are once again increasing in the City of Trenton. We need to flatten the curve but need your help.
COVID-19 is spread from an infected person to others through:
- The air by coughing and sneezing
- Close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands
- Touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes
- In rare cases, contact with feces (poop)
People who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 have symptoms that may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure.
Symptoms may include: fever, cough, and shortness of breath.
The same steps you take to prevent the spread of the flu and the common cold will also help prevent COVID-19:
- Avoid crowds or gatherings, especially indoors.
- Stay at least 6ft away from others outside your household.
- Wear a face-mask when you leave your home.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home while you are sick and avoid contact with others.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
- Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects daily that may be contaminated with germs.
- Answer the call for contact tracing.
- Get a flu shot.
