What is COVID-19?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is monitoring the international outbreak of COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus. The coronavirus is a respiratory disease that was first detected in Wuhan, China, and has since spread globally. The virus is becoming widespread throughout the United States. Per the CDC, the risk of exposure is still low, but that risk will increase. As this is an evolving situation, please visit the CDC website for further updates and risk assessments.

The coronavirus is spread primarily from person to person, but it can also be spread from contact with infected surfaces or objects. Being in close proximity to an infected person who coughs or sneezes will increase the risk of the disease spreading. According to the CDC, infected individuals are most contagious when they are most symptomatic. It is also possible for non-symptomatic patients to spread the virus, but they are not believed to be as contagious.

The CDC has issued the following guidanceto help limit the danger of this emerging public health threat:

  • 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.
  • If you are a healthcare provider, be on the look-out for people who recently traveled from China and have fever and respiratory symptoms.
  • If you are a healthcare provider caring for a COVID-19 patient or a public health responder, please take care of yourself and follow recommended infection control procedures.
  • If you have been in China or have been exposed to someone sick with COVID-19 in the last 14 days, you will face some limitations on your movement and activity. Please follow instructions during this time. Your cooperation is integral to the ongoing public health response to try to slow spread of this virus. If you develop COVID-19 symptoms, contact your healthcare provider, and tell them about your symptoms and your travel or exposure to a COVID-19 patient.
  • For people who are ill with COVID-19, please follow CDC guidance on how to reduce the risk of spreading your illness to others.

In addition, The CDC also recommends following these preventive actions to help limit the spread of respiratory diseases:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
  • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
  • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
