What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 is the novel (or new) coronavirus. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The novel coronavirus was first identified in Wuhan, China, where some patients have had mild illness, while others have been more severe illness, and some have died.
Here’s what you can do to stay healthy:
As always, it is recommended that you follow such standard hygiene practices as:
- Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
- Using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not readily available
- Staying home when you are sick
- Covering the nose and mouth with elbow or a tissue when coughing or sneezing
- Avoiding touching eyes, nose, and mouth
- Maintain social distancing at least 3 feet apart when indoors with someone outside your immediate family
- Wear a mask indoors if you are in an area of substantial or higher transmissions
What if I get sick?
You should contact your healthcare professional immediately. If you test positive for COVID, you should isolate for at least 10 days after your last symptom or 7 days after a negative test results.
