Coronavirus-2019

COVID-19 is an emerging respiratory illness first identified in China and which has now been detected in multiple countries around the world, including the United States. Reported illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death.
Symptoms can include fever, cough, shortness of breath. Symptoms may appear 2–14 days after exposure.
The virus is thought to spread primarily from person-to-person who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or by by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.
Symptoms can include fever, cough, shortness of breath. If you have these symptoms call your doctor. Serious emergency warning signs for COVID-19 include trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion or inability to arouse, bluish lips or face. If you have these symptoms seek medical attention immediately.
Residents are encouraged to follow the below general guidance to reduce the likelihood of airborne transmission of any respiratory disease:
  • Practice “social distancing” of at least 6 feet
  • Wash your hands, often, with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • If you or a family member is sick, stay home and limit contact with others
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
If you are sick and have also either recently traveled to a country with sustained community spread of COVID-19 or had close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, contact your healthcare provider.
