What is Coronavirus?
The disease is called COVID-19

Signs and Symptoms:
Shortness of Breath

Incubation period:
Ranges from 2-14 days

Contagious Period and Spread:
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly inhaled into the lungs.
It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then
touching their own mouth, nose and possibly their eyes, but this is not thought the main way the virus spreads.

To protect yourself and others:
Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based (60% or more)
hand sanitizers are also effective
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread that way.
Try to avoid close contact with sick people or maintain a distance of 6 feet from others.
If you get sick, stay home from work or school and limit contact with others to avoid spreading of germs.
If you have flu-like symptoms, call your doctor and contact your local health department.

If you have been exposed to an ill person with flue like symptoms:
Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers
(60% or more)are also effective.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
Monitor yourself for symptoms of fever, chills, nasal congestion, sore throat/and or cough.
If you develop these symptoms, call your doctor.
