What is COVID-19 Coronavirus?

Coronavirus is a respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China, and believed to have initially spread from animals to humans but now is spreading from person-to-person contact. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it’s unclear how easily or sustainably this virus is spreading between people. Typically, respiratory viruses are most contagious when an individual is most symptomatic, but there have been reports of the virus spreading when the affected individual does not show any symptoms.

What can you do to prevent coming in contact with COVID-19 Coronavirus?

  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol based hand sanitizer that contains 60- 95% alcohol when water and soap are not available.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Stay home if sick.

  • Cover nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with a tissue, then immediately dispose of the tissue and wash hands for at least 20 seconds..

  • It’s currently flu and respiratory disease season and CDC recommends getting a flu vaccine, taking everyday preventive actions to help stop the spread of germs, and taking flu antivirals if prescribed.
