The symptoms of this infection are similar to a common cold and include sore throat, cough or fever. For a few people it may become pneumonia and cause shortness of breath. People at highest risk of pneumonia include those with diabetes or another chronic disease and those over the age of 65 years old. Smoking can also increase your risk.

Los síntomas de esta infección son similares a un catarro común: dolor de garganta, tos o fiebre. Algunas personas pueden empeorarse y tener pulmonía y dificultades para respirar. Las personas con riesgo elevado de contraer pulmonía incluyen personas con diabetes o alguna otra enfermedad crónica y los mayores de 65 años de edad. Las personas que fuman también pueden tener un nivel de riesgo más alto.

Washing your hands for 20 seconds frequently, but especially before you eat is the most effective way to prevent becoming infected. Separating people with symptoms from people without symptoms is also very important to prevent the spread of this infection. Please call your outreach worker if you or your coworker have symptoms of sore throat, cough or fever.

Lavarse las manos frecuentemente por 20 segundos, pero especialmente antes de comer, es la manera más efectiva de evitar ser contagiado. Separar a las personas con síntomas de la gente sin síntomas también es muy importante para evitar que se propague esta infección. Por favor llame a su trabajador de alcance si usted o sus compañeros tienen síntomas, incluyendo dolor de garganta, tos o fiebre.
