Know how it spreads:

  • There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease in 2019 (COVID-19)

  • The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

  • The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-person.

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet.)

  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person, coughs, sneezes, or talks.

  • These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

  • Some recent studies have suggested that COVID-19  may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.

 

EVERYONE SHOULD WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
