Coronavirus / COVID-19





What You Need to Know

Coronavirus, or COVID-19, is a virus strain that leads to respiratory illnesses. The spread of the COVID-19 virus is occurring globally and its continued transmission, particularly within the U.S., is anticipated to continue in the immediate future.


Most cases of infection are minor and self-limited, but severe infections do occur, particularly in individuals with underlying chronic medical problems. Since there are no approved medications or vaccines for the infection, care for patients is limited to supportive and preventive care. It is vital that anyone feeling the symptoms of coronavirus should contact a doctor.


What precautions you can take

Avoid contact with all sick individuals

Wash hands regularly with soap and water for 20 seconds

Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands

Stay home and seek medical attention if you feel sick

ALL INDIVIDUALS should take the following steps to minimize further transmission:
 o  Avoid contact with all sick individuals
 o  Cover your mouth with your elbow or arm when sneezing
 o  Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, particularly after sneezing or wiping your nose
 o  Avoid unnecessary social contact such as hand shaking and hugging
 o  Avoid touching your nose, mouth, or face, and wash/disinfect your hands after such contact occurs
 o  Stay at home if you feel ill (particularly with a fever, cough, or runny nose)
 o  Seek medical attention if you are short of breath, have difficulty breathing, have high spiking fever or symptoms that continue without improvement
