"The 5,368 new coronavirus cases announced Friday was the largest in Illinois since the pandemic began. The previous record was 4,014 on May 12. Recent numbers have shown home gatherings including backyard cookouts with family and friends are now a main driver of an increase in COVID 19 numbers."2 CaliforniaStatus: Dark Red"Experts said the challenge facing society is to get beyond the lockdown conditions of spring while still avoiding gatherings that can spread the virus," reports the Los Angeles Times. "Many agencies are urging people to stay home through the weekend, but that might be hard for some to do in the waning days of summer—especially with a heat wave bearing down." "People should not just hunker down and stay home. We're normal social creatures, and we have to find ways of socializing in a safe way," Dr. Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo, chair of UC San Francisco's Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, told the paper.3 TexasStatus: Dark Red"The Rev. Tom Wood, 83, who ministered at First United Methodist Church in the tiny town of Itasca (population 1,726) for 17 years…died July 29 of complications related to COVID-19." "He would say — and it came from such an authentic place — that his hope was in Christ and resurrection," the Rev. Jaime McGlothlin of Valley Mills First United Methodist Church in Texas told NBC News. "He said, 'I know, at my age, this virus will probably take my life if I get it.' He was sober about that early on. He was not anxious. He was grounded."4 FloridaStatus: Dark Red"More than 12,000 people have died in the state of Florida due to coronavirus-related causes, according to the latest figures released by the state's Department of Health," reports NBC 6. "Florida added 2,564 new coronavirus cases Sunday, bringing its total to 646,431."RELATED: COVID Mistakes You Should Never Make5 GeorgiaStatus: Dark Orange"Labor Day weekend saw Georgia pass yet another grim milestone in the coronavirus pandemic, when the state passed 6,000 COVID-related deaths," reports AJC.

A total of 283,199 cases have been reported."6 South CarolinaStatus: Dark Orange"It has now been six months since those first cases were announced. In that time, South Carolina has seen its case count rise to more than 120,000, with more than 2,700 deaths related to the novel coronavirus," reports the State. "The global pandemic has hit the Palmetto State hard, closing schools and businesses and putting many out of work."7 North CarolinaStatus: Dark Orange"North Carolina's reported coronavirus total rose by more than 1,000 cases Sunday, bringing the number of cases statewide to 176,901," reports the News Observer. "North Carolina's Department of Health and Human Services reported 2,890 deaths from COVID-19 in North Carolina Sunday, just one more than on Saturday. The state's positive COVID-19 testing rate, last updated Friday, was 6.1%."8 VirginiaStatus: Dark Orange"The Labor Day holiday weekend is underway, but with that comes a sharp increase in COVID-19 cases at Virginia Tech," reports WDBJ. "Campus cases have more than doubled since Sunday. According to Friday's update on the COVID-19 Dashboard, the school is reporting 238 new cases with 416 positive tests since Aug. 16."RELATED: I'm a Doctor and Here's When You Can Safely Keep Your Mask Off9 TennesseeStatus: Dark Orange"The Tennessee Department of Health reported 1,764 additional COVID-19 cases Sunday, along with 3 new deaths," reports News Channel 5. "This brings the state's total count to 164,126 cases so far and 1,865 deaths. The state reported 976 new recoveries in the last 24 hours, for a total of 145,359 since the pandemic began. There are 819 current hospitalizations."10 AlabamaStatus: Dark Orange"It seemed like Billy Joe Driver, 84, was always around in this Alabama city"—of Clanton— "after 36 years as mayor," reports the AP. "All that visibility meant people noticed when Driver disappeared from public in June, and friends bowed in prayer when word got out he was sick with what many had assumed was a big-city disease, COVID-19. Driver died of the illness in July, forcing a reckoning that's still rippling through the community."11 OhioStatus: Dark Orange"The Ohio Department of Health reported 1,341 more coronavirus infections on Saturday, pushing the statewide tally to 129,785," reports Lima Ohio. "Saturday's numbers topped the three-week average of 1,053 COVID-19 cases per day. Officials have been urging Ohioans to take care and to practice safety precautions during the Labor Day weekend in hopes the state can avoid a post-holiday surge, as occurred during July."12 North DakotaStatus: Yellow"A Sioux County man with COVID-19 has died, and the state has set an active case record three days in a row, according to data the North Dakota Department of Health reported Sunday," according to the Bismarck Tribune.13 South DakotaStatus: YellowSays Deseret News: "South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem has discouraged schools from requiring masks and promoted hand-washing instead. She also has campaigned against 'elite class of so-called experts,' who, she said, impact liberty."14 MissouriStatus: Dark Orange"Monday, September 7, marks six months since the first COVID-19 case was announced in St. Louis County. Since then, Missouri has reported more than 94,000 coronavirus cases," reports KMOV. "Life has undoubtedly changed for everybody in the past six months. Thousands of people ended up in hospitals and over 1,600 people lost their lives due to complications caused by the virus. Hospitals neared capacity and the entire health care system had to adapt to perhaps an inevitable outbreak. Half a million Missourians lost their jobs and thousands of people had less food on the table."15 OklahomaStatus: Dark Orange"The Oklahoma State Department of Health on Sunday reported 420 new coronavirus cases across the state, bringing the total cumulative number of the state's positive cases to 63,607."16 How to Avoid COVID-19 Where You AreSays the CDC in their warning: "Wear a mask.

Are you, like me, completely fascinated by all the news about COVID-19? As a doctor, even I am becoming a bit of a hypochondriac. Maybe you have started wondering: Could I, right now, have the dreaded virus, lurking somewhere in my body? Unfortunately, it's not as simple as opening your mouth in front of the mirror, poking out your tongue and saying "Ah!"—even if you do have a fine pair of tonsils! Read on to discover eight warning signs COVID-19 is in your body—and how to treat them. Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.1 You Have a FeverYou may not believe it, but a fever is actually a good thing. You develop one when you have an infection because your immune system has been activated and is working hard on the front line—to defend you from the invading virus. The virus cannot survive at higher temperatures. Your body releases heat shock proteins which help protect your own cells from damage. Some research studies have shown people who have a fever have a better prognosis than those who do not.2 How to Treat Your FeverIt may seem counterintuitive but in fact, try not to get anxious about lowering the fever. You can take Tylenol within the prescribed doses. Drink plenty of fluids and cool yourself with a damp sponge and a fan."Although a fever technically is any body temperature above the normal of 98.6 F (37 C), in practice a person is usually not considered to have a significant fever until the temperature is above 100.4 F (38 C)," says MedicineNet. 3 You Have a Dry CoughCough is a common symptom of COVID-19, and common at this time of year due to hay fever and asthma. The typical COVID-19 cough is dry and irritating. 4 How to Treat Your CoughThe National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has issued recent guidance about treating cough with COVID-19. * Encourage patients to sit up and avoid lying flat. * Take 1 teaspoon of honey when needed. * If the cough is distressing, a doctor might prescribe a codeine linctus/codeine phosphate tablet, 15-30 mg every 4 hours, the maximum dosage is 4 doses in 24 hours.Always discuss taking any medication with your healthcare provider in advance.5 You Have Shortness of BreathIf you are living with COVID-19 infection at home, breathlessness may be a troublesome symptom. 6 How to Treat Your Shortness of BreathIf you feel breathless, you should seek medical help right away. COVID-19 infections can worsen rapidly, and it is not possible to assess the severity via the Internet.Here are further NICE 2020 recommendations: * First, try to stay calm. Anxiety makes breathlessness feel much worse. * Keep your bedroom cool and open the window. * Concentrate on your breathing, sit upright, try to relax your shoulders. * Sometimes leaning forward and gripping something like the back of a chair may help. * Some people get relief with pursed-lip breathing. This means breathing in through your nose, waiting a few seconds, then breathing out slowly over four seconds with pursed lips. Breathing against the pursed lips creates pressure in the airways and helps relieve the sensation of breathlessness.TAKE NOTE: Other signs of respiratory distress are blue lips, blue fingernails/fingers and toes, shaky hands, confusion and dizziness. Call your doctor if you experience any shortness of breath whatsoever.7 You Have a Sore ThroatSore throats are very common with any respiratory infections. Although unpleasant, they usually settle as the infection settles. Most sore throats don't need any treatment. If your sore throat is especially bad, do ask a doctor to check it out in case you have tonsillitis for example.8 How to Treat Your Sore ThroatSore throats can be eased by drinking plenty of fluids, sucking lozenges, gargling with salt water, and/or the use of throat sprays. Sucking an ice cube or eating an ice pop may help. 9 You Have DiarrheaAround half of all people infected with COVID-19 have digestive symptoms; 18% present with diarrhea, vomiting or abdominal pain. Usually, this is just up to three loose stools per day. RELATED: COVID Mistakes You Should Never Make10 How to Treat Digestive SymptomsIt's important to drink plenty of fluids and not become dehydrated, so consider the use of rehydration sachets or a drink like Gatorade. Gastroenterologists sometimes prescribe antibiotics or antivirals for infective diarrhea due to changes in the gut flora that occur in a COVID-19 infection. Of note, in Wuhan, the Chinese treated COVID-19 diarrhea with probiotics.11 You Have Chills and Muscle PainsChills and muscle pains are common non-specific signs of many infections. They may, however, be a sign of more severe infection. Chills occur when your core body temperature has increased, and your peripheral muscles then contract and relax to create more body heat. Muscles feel painful and may be tender to touch because they are being directly damaged by the virus. 12 How to Treat Your Chills and Muscle PainsYou can try a variety of treatments for muscle pains such as Tylenol, ice, gentle stretching, or massage.13 You Have a New Loss of Taste or SmellA recent study in the International Forum of Allergy and Rhinology reported that if you have a loss of smell and taste, you are 10 times more likely to be infected with COVID-19 than have any other infective cause. At the time of the study, 70% of COVID-19 patients reported their symptoms were improving. Loss of taste and smell is common after many respiratory infections but seems even more common as a presenting symptom of COVID-19 infection. 14 How to Treat Your Loss of Taste of SmellIt seems more commonly found in people with only mild infection. Try not to forget to eat, as you may have a reduced appetite.15 You Have FatigueFatigue is stated in the publications from Wuhan, as one of the main presenting features of COVID-19 infection. In one report—46% of patients complained of extreme fatigue in the early stages of the disease. Fatigue is a common symptom of many different diseases, so is not specific to COVID-19 infections.16 How to Treat Your FatigueYou'll have a full-body tiredness. So do what you know is right—and rest that body.RELATED: I'm a Doctor and Here's When You Can Safely Keep Your Mask Off17 One Final Note from the DoctorLook out for these emergency warning signs* for COVID-19.

Sure, the country is slowly beginning to reopen, but you can't let your guard down when it comes to COVID-19. The virus is still alive and well, and infecting people everywhere from the grocery store to parks and beaches. However, this doesn't mean you have to spend the summer indoors. It simply requires a little diligence, patience, and understanding about how the disease is spread. There are certain mistakes that many people are making when they leave the house putting them at risk of infection. To stay safe, here are 14 easily avoidable mistakes, according to experts. Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.1 You're Wearing Face Masks or Face Coverings Incorrectly"If you are going into an area of congestion, I would definitely wear a mask," says Heidi J. Zapata, MD, a Yale Medicine infectious disease expert. However, wearing a face mask isn't enough. It has to be worn correctly to be effective. "I know they are hard to wear, and difficult to wear with glasses (lens fog up). However, if you are going into an area of congestion, and you wear the mask just over your mouth, then you can still be infected by inhaling through your nose," she points out. "You can also sneeze and possibly infect those around you." The Rx: Therefore, she suggests wearing your mask over your nose and mouth to avoid error.2 You're Don't Know What Six Feet Apart Looks LikeIf you have left the house recently, you have probably noticed that everyone seems to have a different idea what six feet looks like. "Not everyone is doing this correctly," Dr. Zapata maintains. For example, if you decide to take a walk with your friend in the park, it is admittedly hard to walk and talk with someone side by side and still stay six feet apart in a narrow path or sidewalk. "I am seeing many people take a walk and are only one or two feet apart," she says. The Rx: She suggests taking out a tape measure if you aren't clear on what the social distancing recommendation looks like. "One thing to consider would be to sit down on the grass, and measure the 6 feet and have a conversation at a distance." Also, remember six feet is about two arms lengths apart, or the length of a twin-size bed.3 You're Bringing the Infection InsideWhen you return home from an outing, explains Purvi Parikh, MD, allergist with Allergy&Asthma Network, you could be bringing the virus home with you via your clothing and masks. The Rx: "When you reach home, leave shoes outside and wash all clothing including homemade masks," she suggests. 4 You're Unconsciously TouchingWhen you go to a public place like a supermarket, be conscious of what you touch, urges Dr. Zapata. "For example you go to the supermarket, and are wearing a mask, and then touch a door knob/handle, and then grab the handle for the food cart. You then decide to grab some milk. Keep track of what you are touching, and try to clean your hands with hand sanitizer often," she suggests. Otherwise, if you rub your eyes or touch your face after having touched one of many objects, it would be an easy way of getting infected. The Rx: "We often do not keep track of touching our faces," she continues. "Remember these objects are touched by hundreds if not thousands of people every day." Other examples of items to be conscious of include elevator buttons, railings on stairs, and credit card machines. 5 You're Not Being Considerate of Others When Going for a Walk or RunEveryone wants to get some fresh air and exercise, but trails can be dangerous if you don't follow the rules. The Rx: "If you are on the same path for example in a park and are going for a jog, go around the person that is in front of you (give it a six feet radius), and keep jogging or walking," Dr. Zapata urges. "No one wants someone to breathe heavily on them during this time."6 You're Not Waiting Your TurnRemember back in preschool when you learned the importance of taking turns? Well, this is a good time to utilize that skill. "For example, if someone is at an aisle at a supermarket and is picking a food item, wait until they are done to go near that aisle (can wait patiently six feet apart)," Dr. Zapata suggests. "Of course this requires consideration on both ends."The Rx: Many markets and doctors' offices are placing stickers on the ground that note where to stand; follow them. This goes for elevators also. Some buildings will only allow two people into one car per time; this is for your own safety.7 You're Drinking Out of a Drinking Fountain or Using a Communal Water DispenserWhile the water inside of a drinking fountain or communal water dispenser is safe to drink, experts point out that given the fact that a number of mouths and noses come into close contact with the tap, you should probably avoid them. Also, to get water out of a fountain or dispenser you usually have to come into contact with a button or lever—which means other people have likely touched it too. The Rx: To be safe, you might want to bring a bottle of water with you instead. 8 You're Using Public RestroomsIn a blog post that has since gone viral, Erin S. Bromage, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Biology at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth reveals some of the riskiest situations for COVID-19 infection. Due to the fact that bathrooms are generally some of the germiest spots, they made the list. "Bathrooms have a lot of high touch surfaces, door handles, faucets, stall doors. So fomite transfer risk in this environment can be high," he explains. The Rx: While it is still unclear whether infectious material can be released in feces, "we do know that toilet flushing does aerosolize many droplets," he points out. "Treat public bathrooms with extra caution (surface and air), until we know more about the risk."9 You're Not Taking Account of AirflowOne of the most important messages of Dr. Bromage's blog post has to do with airflow. He points to research finding that an overwhelming majority of the cases examined via contact tracing around the world, only a single outbreak was reported from an outdoor event—and this has to do with airflow. "Indoor spaces, with limited air exchange or recycled air and lots of people, are concerning from a transmission standpoint," he explains. The Rx: While social distancing suggestions—standing 6 feet apart—are effective in preventing transmission in open air spaces, all bets are off when you are indoors. "If I am outside, and I walk past someone, remember it is 'dose and time' needed for infection," he points out. "You would have to be in their airstream for 5+ minutes for a chance of infection." However, if you are in a poorly ventilated space with recycled air, infection will occur much more quickly. 10 You're Spending Too Much Time in One Crowded Indoor SpaceWhen you are at the grocery store or any other common indoor space, avoid taking your time. Dr. Bromage points out that there are various factors you need to take into consideration when assessing the risk of infection (via respiration). These include the volume of the air space, the number of people in the space, and how long people are spending in the space. The Rx: Basically, the longer you spend in a crowded store, the more likely your chances of infection are. As Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has said: "Outdoors is always better than indoors."RELATED: COVID Mistakes You Should Never Make11 You're Eating at RestaurantsDr. Bromage explains that due to airflow in most restaurants, respiratory droplets can travel more than six feet through the air. And, the longer you spend dining, the chances of becoming infected increase. In an example he provides, one infected person had dinner with nine friends. "During this meal, the asymptomatic carrier released low-levels of virus into the air from their breathing," he explains, with airflow from right to left. Nearly half of the people at his table became sick within the week, 75 percent of people sitting at the adjacent downwind table became infected, and 2 of the 7 people on the upwind table. However, people sitting at tables out of the main airflow were infected. The Rx: After months of eating at home, the idea of dining out at a restaurant is very enticing. However, it's important to keep in mind that COVID-19 can be easily spread in eating establishments—and not just via touching.12 You've Gained Some WeightI get it—you've been stuck inside, and now can't wait to eat and drink yourself silly at bars and restaurants. But chances are you haven't been eating that great while "stuck indoors." A healthy and balanced diet keeps your immune system strong, and keeping your immune system strong should be a priority during this pandemic.The Rx: If you've gained weight during self-isolation, eat right by visiting our website.13 You're Wearing Gloves ImproperlyMany people consider gloves a foolproof way to protect themselves from coming into contact with the virus. However, if you aren't following proper glove-wearing procedure—including taking them off correctly and washing or sanitizing your hands immediately after removing them—using them might do more harm than good. The Rx: "Gloves are not helpful unless you are changing or washing them frequently as they also get contaminated," explains Dr. Parikh. "It is probably best to keep washing your hands."14 You're Attending Celebrations, Funerals or Other Group GatheringsWhile it may be tempting to attend a group gathering—especially when it involves family, celebration, or mourning—in his blog Dr. Bromage points out that these accounted for 10 percent of "early spreader events." He shares a true story of an individual who was infected with the virus but hadn't yet experienced symptoms. The man shared a takeout meal with family members, serving it out of a common dish. The next day he went to a funeral where he hugged a few people. He also attended a birthday party, hugging many of the people there. By the time he started showing symptoms, was put on a ventilator, and later passed away, he had infected both the people he shared the meal with, and several people from the funeral and birthday party. And they in turn, infected others. The Rx: In total, one man was directly responsible for infecting 16 people between the ages of 5 and 86 and three deaths. Remember that before you congregate, even if your city allows group gatherings.
