What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 is a highly contagious virus caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. It was first identified in Wuhan, China in December 2019 and has since spread globally, leading to a worldwide pandemic. The virus primarily spreads through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks, or breathes. It can also spread by touching surfaces contaminated with the virus and then touching the face.

Preventing COVID-19 Transmission
Preventing the transmission of COVID-19 is crucial to protect ourselves and others. Here are some important steps you can take:
Regularly wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap is not available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content.
Wear a Mask
Wear a mask or face cover when in public settings where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Masks help to prevent the spread of respiratory droplets from infected individuals.
Maintain a safe distance of at least 6 feet from others who are not from your household. Avoid crowded places and limit social gatherings.
Stay Home When Sick
If you experience any symptoms such as fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, stay home and seek medical care. Follow the guidelines provided by your local health authorities.
The symptoms of COVID-19 can range from mild to severe, and in some cases, can be life-threatening. Common symptoms include:
- Fever: A high body temperature, typically above 100.4°F (38°C).
- Cough: A dry cough that persists and may worsen over time.
- Shortness of breath: Difficulty breathing or experiencing rapid breathing.
- Fatigue: Feeling exhausted or tired even after adequate rest.
- Loss of taste or smell: A sudden loss of taste or smell without any apparent cause.
Seeking Medical Assistance
If you experience severe symptoms such as difficulty breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, confusion, bluish lips or face, or other emergency warning signs, seek medical attention immediately. Call your healthcare provider or emergency services beforehand to inform them about your symptoms.
If you suspect that you may have been exposed to COVID-19 or if you are experiencing symptoms, it is important to get tested. Testing helps in early detection and containment of the virus. Contact your local health department or healthcare provider to inquire about testing facilities and procedures in your area.
