What is COVID-19:
- COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus which is a broad category of viruses that affect both people and animals.
- Evidence suggests it began with an animal to person transmission and then shifted to person to person spread.
- Symptomatic people are the most frequent sources of COVID-19 spread (as is true for the flu and colds).
- The incubation period-the time frame between exposure and having symptoms-ranges from 2-14 days.
- COVID-19 data to date suggests that 80% of infections are mild, 15% are severe-requiring oxygen, and 5% are critical requiring ventilation. At this time the percentage of severe and critical infections are higher for COVID-19 than for the flu.
- There is currently no vaccine for COVID-19.
- People who have already had a coronavirus infection, including COVID-19 may get it again.
Clean Your Hands Often

If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid Close Contact
Avoid close contact with people who are sick
Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
