About Coronavirus

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to respond to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a new coronavirus that was first detected in China and has now spread internationally. While the virus is termed coronavirus, the sickness that results after infection has been termed COVID-19.

COVID-19 has now been declared a pandemic, which is a global outbreak of a disease.

How does the virus spread?

  • According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) the virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
    • It will spread between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
    • When an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks respiratory droplets produced will disperse to others near by.
    • Some recent studies have suggested that people who are not showing symptoms may still spread COVID-19.
  • Currently there is no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Do Your Part To Slow The Spread Of The Coronavirus

Keep your distance

Keep your hands clean

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • 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.

Wear a face cover

  • Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities.
    • Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

Clean and disinfect

  • Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
