What Should you know?

  • Coronavirus (COVID-19) is an illness caused
    by a virus that can spread from person
    to person.
    • The virus that causes COVID-19 is a new
    coronavirus that has spread throughout
    the world.
    • COVID-19 symptoms can range from mild
    (or no symptoms) to severe illness.

Fear and anxiety about COVID-19 can
cause people to avoid or reject others
even though they are not at risk for
spreading the virus



FACT #2 

For most people, the
immediate risk of becoming
seriously ill from the virus
that causes COVID-19 is
thought to be low.

Older adults and people of any
age who have serious underlying
medical conditions may be at
higher risk for more serious
complications from COVID-19.

  • You can become infected by coming into
    close contact (about 6 feet or two
    arm lengths) with a person who has
    COVID-19. COVID-19 is primarily spread
    from person to person.
    • You can become infected from respiratory
    droplets when an infected person coughs,
    sneezes, or talks.
    • You may also be able to get it by touching a
    surface or object that has the virus on it, and
    then by touching your mouth, nose, or eyes.

Protect yourself and other from COVID-19?

  • There is currently no vaccine to protect
    against COVID-19. The best way to protect
    yourself is to avoid being exposed to the
    virus that causes COVID-19.
    • Stay home as much as possible and avoid
    close contact with others.
    • Wear a cloth face covering that covers your
    nose and mouth in public settings.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently
    touched surfaces.
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water
    for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcoholbased hand sanitizer that contains at least
    60% alcohol


Someone who has
completed quarantine or
has been released from
isolation does not pose a
risk of infection to
other people.
