Information About COVID-19
COVID-19 is a new disease that causes respiratory illness and can spread from person to person who is in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It also may be possible to get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes.

What is COVID-19?
What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
What can I do to protect myself and prevent the spread of the disease?
- Regularly and thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water or clean them with an alcohol-based hand rub.
- Maintain at least 6-foot distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Your hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses.
- Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze, then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
- STAY HOME if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention.
- Keep up to date on the latest COVID-19 hotspots (cities or local areas where COVID-19 is spreading widely) and avoid traveling to those places. You have a higher chance of catching COVID-19 in one of these areas.
What should I do if I am sick?
- STAY HOME!: People who are mildly ill with COVID-19 are able to isolate at home during their illness. You should restrict activities outside your home, except for getting medical care.
- Avoid Public Areas: Do not go to work, school, or public areas. Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
- Stay Away From Others: As much as possible, you should stay in a specific room and away from other people in your home. Also, you should use a separate bathroom, if available.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw used tissues in a lined trash can. Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or, if soap and water are not available, clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
