What is COVID-19, and how does it spread?

COVID-19 is an illness caused by a virus spread person-to-person or by touching a contaminated surface and then touching your eyes, nose, mouth, or face. Medical professionals believe that the virus is spread primarily through respiratory droplets. Infected individuals have reported mild to severe, life-threatening symptoms that result in death. Symptoms can include:
 

Fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea.
 

While all people are potentially at risk of contracting COVID-19, those over age 65 and those with underlying health conditions (heart or lung disease, diabetes, etc.) are at greater risk and are strongly encouraged to stay home. 

If you have COVID-19 symptoms, encounter anyone with these symptoms, or who has tested positive for COVID-19, please refrain from entering or vacate the premises immediately and contact your medical care provider.
