COVID-19

On March 11, the WHO declared COVID-19 a worldwide pandemic.

Per the CDC: “The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus”. Many countries and cities are enforcing full lock-downs and encouraging social distancing to prevent viral spread, which occurs between people who are in close contact or through respiratory droplets.

COVID-19 Facts

What is the coronavirus?

COVID-19 is a highly contagious respiratory illness that first emerged in Wuhan, China in December 2019. Symptoms include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. While 80% of those who catch the virus have mild symptoms or no symptoms at all, many over the age of 65 experience severe symptoms that require hospitalization.

How does the virus spread?

While researchers are still determining the exact details, the virus is known to be airborne. It spreads through particle droplets produced by coughing or sneezing. These droplets can live on certain surfaces for up to 3 days.

Asymptomatic people (those who don’t show symptoms) can still spread the virus to others. Because the virus is contagious in those who do not have symptoms, it is highly encouraged that you avoid social contact and large gatherings to eliminate potential spread.

How can I protect myself and others from contracting the virus?

  • Stay at home. Avoid social contact with others, especially those over the age of 65.
  • Wash your hands with soap and warm water frequently, for at least 20 seconds at a time.
  • Clean household surfaces.
  • Seek medical advice or care if you develop a fever, cough, and difficulty breathing
