About COVID-19

COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) is a respiratory disease caused by a novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reported cases of COVID-19 have ranged from very mild, including some with no reported symptoms, to severe, including illness resulting in death. Elderly and people of all ages with severe underlying health conditions, such as heart or lung disease, and diabetes, appear to be at higher risk of developing serious illness. If symptoms develop such as fever, cough, and /or difficulty breathing, and you have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or have recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19, the CDC advises individuals to stay home and contact their health care provider. Recognizing persons who are at risk for COVID-19 is a critical component of identifying cases and preventing further transmission.  Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
