What you should know about Coronavirus
The novel coronavirus spreads easily and is causing respiratory illness around the world. Symptoms of COVID-19 can include fever, cough, and trouble breathing. While many patients are asymptomatic or experience only mild symptoms, some people develop more severe complications such as pneumonia, which can be life-threatening. Many of the people who experience severe symptoms are older or have other chronic medical conditions like heart disease, lung disease, and diabetes.

How can I protect my family and community?
We all have a role to play in fighting coronavirus and keeping our families and communities safe.

  • Social Distancing
    Stay home! If you have to leave home for critical supplies or medical care, stay 6 feet away from others. People can spread the virus even without symptoms.
  • Wash Hands Often
    Wash hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds when leaving the bathroom, before you prepare food or eat, or when you blow your nose, cough, or sneeze. Use a hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are unavailable.
  • Cover Your Coughs & Sneezes
    Cover sneezes and coughs with your elbow or a tissue. Dispose of tissues carefully and wash your hands.
  • Clean & Disinfect
    Clean frequently-used surfaces including phones, remote controls, light switches, and door handles with a disinfecting solution regularly.
