Frequently Asked Questions and Answers about COVID-19 Coronavirus
Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH)
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about COVID-19 Coronavirus
What is COVID-19?
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China. For the latest information, go to CDC COVID-19 website.
Can people in the U.S. get COVID-19?
Yes. COVID-19 is spreading from person to person in parts of the United States. Risk of infection with COVID-19 is higher for people who are close contacts of someone known to have COVID-19, for example healthcare workers, or household members. Other people at higher risk for infection are those who live in or have recently been in an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19.
How does COVID-19 spread?
The virus is thought to spread mainly between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It also may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.
What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
Patients with COVID-19 have had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of
 Fever
 Cough
 Shortness of breath
What are severe complications from this virus?
Some patients have pneumonia in both lungs, multi-organ failure and in some cases death.
Is there a vaccine or treatment?
There is currently no vaccine and no specific treatment for this disease. People infected with COVID-19 can seek medical care to help relieve symptoms.
How can I help protect myself?
There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19 infection. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However you should follow these everyday actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses.
 Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue use your elbow not your hands. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

What do I do if I get symptoms of COVID-19?
 First, call your primary care provider and explain your symptoms and any recent travel history or close contact with someone who has.
 Before seeking health care call ahead to the facility and tell them your situation. They will give you instructions on how to get care without exposing other people to your illness.
 Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
 Stay home when you are sick.
 Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue use your elbow not your hands.
 Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Q: What is a Persons Under Investigation (PUI)?
A: PUI is a person that has met specific criteria set by the CDC and is being monitored for disease.

Q: What is the difference between isolation and quarantine?
A: First, both Isolation and Quarantine are similar in that they are both imposed to limit the spread of communicable disease.
There is no such thing as “self-isolation” or “self-quarantine”. Both of these tactics are imposed and enforced by the Erie County Department of Health.
Source: hhs.gov

Should I cancel my trip out of the country?
A: This is a rapidly changing situation. Currently, the ECDOH is quarantining individuals for up to 14 days who travel from countries designated by the CDC as "Level 2" or “Level 3.” Individuals who have travel plans outside the United States should consult the CDC Travel Information website for the most recent guidance. Travelers who return from a Level 3 country at this time are subject to quarantine for 14 days following their return to Erie County.

Where can I find further information?
Use reliable, fact-based sources when seeking out information about COVID-19 and other public health topics. We recommend the following sites.
 Info from the ECDOH
 Erie County, NY COVID-19 Update & Rumor Control
 Latest Updates from the CDC
 Info from the NYSDOH
 Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA)
 Guidance for Travelers

General information

Alden is noted for its black water baths. Mineral rich "black water" was discovered while drilling for natural gas in 1891. During the drilling process, one of the few unsuccessful operations had struck a vein of mineral rich black water. Although it was a disappointment to the gas company, it became a boon to the community. Many of the earliest patrons of these "black water baths" were immigrants from Europe who knew about "the waters" of Europe. Within a few years people were coming to Alden from Buffalo and cities in the east. In 1936 the New York State Joint Legislative Committee investigated mineral water state-wide. The committee concluded that "Alden Black Mineral Water is especially beneficial in the treatment of rheumatism, arthritis, sciatica, neuritis, salt rheum, high and low blood pressure and skin diseases."

DOES ANYONE KNOW OF ANY 3 BEDROOM APT FOR RENT
Is there Law enforcement in Alden, I can't walk my dog anymore because too many dogs wandering without leashes. And is there any point in time that the fireworks stop because in the village they have gone on every night since July 3rd and it's the 7th and still haven't stopped?
Looking to find support in changing zoning law to allow chickens with permit...friend me if interested
Calling all singers! Alden Area Ecumenical Choir is starting up its new season under new leadership. Come and join the choir if you love to sing and want to join our friendly and loving group. Our first rehearsal for the spring season is this Thursday, February 21, at 7:00pm at Alden Presbyterian Church. Dues are $25 for the season. There are 10 practices followed by three concerts. We raise money for charities.
The Village of Alden DPW is on site at West Main and Meadow Drive repairing a water main leak. Residents from the Town Park on Main street, Birch Creek, Homecourt, Meadow, and Willow Woods may experience low or no water pressure for the next few hours. There is a possibility of dirty or cloudy water as well do to pressure changes. We will advise when the system is restored. Alden DPW
My son lost his "Rockband" drumstick from the Concert last week at the High School. Did anyone pick it up by accident?
New "4 way stop sign" at the corner of Westcott & Irving Streets...please use caution through that intersection.
I was wondering if anyone in the Alden area knows of anyone that hauls water to fill up a well? The dairy farmer I have used in the past is no longer in the business
Hi, i have a question. The tree on the corner by my house a ton of dead branches on it, like half side of the tree. During wind storms, a large branch will often fall to the ground. I am often picking up smaller branches. It looks ugly also as is. Can the village come and trim the old dead branches off? Maybe it will sprout new life on that side of the tree.
CROSSWALK TALK Ok village people, time to take the crosswalk situation serious. The signs in the middle of the street are not helping enough. We know in today's society, people text and drive, and for a split second, look away from the road. All it takes is a split second. Too many young kids and families cross by Wescott, Emerson, or the West Main/Broadway split. We can be as careful as we can be, but when you tell your kids to only cross after a car has stopped, there are other factors: cars in other direction dont stop; cars behind stopped cars go around them on the shoulder, which is the most dangerous. Time to put up a blinking crosswalk warning that kids and adults can press, like by the intermediate school. Today, not tomorrow. Cause tomorrow will be too late. No kid (or adult) should have their safety at risk as much as they are, especially in a village where we know cars go too fast as it is. This is not a request, it is a demand. The time is now. I will be gathering a large group for one of the Village Board Meetings in June to address this issue. Would appreciate feedback, thank you!
