The novel coronavirus spreads easily and is causing respiratory illness around the world. Symptoms of COVID-19 can include fever, cough, and trouble breathing. While many patients are asymptomatic or experience only mild symptoms, some people develop more severe complications such as pneumonia, which can be life-threatening. Many of the people who experience severe symptoms are older or have other chronic medical conditions like heart disease, lung disease, and diabetes.
We all have a role to play in fighting coronavirus and keeping our families and communities safe.
Stay home! If you have to leave home for critical supplies or medical care, stay 6 feet away from others. People can spread the virus even without symptoms.

Cover sneezes and coughs with your elbow or a tissue. Dispose of tissues carefully and wash your hands.
Clean frequently-used surfaces including phones, remote controls, light switches, and door handle with a disinfecting solution regularly.
