What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a virus strain that has only spread in people since December 2019.

Health experts are concerned because little is known about this new virus and it

has the potential to cause severe illness, pneumonia, and death.

How does COVID-19 spread?

Health experts are still learning the details about how this new coronavirus

spreads. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person:

  • Between people who are in close contact (within about 6 feet) with an ill person, and
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
  • It also may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it, then touching their mouth, nose or eyes.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

People who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 have reported symptoms that

may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure to the

virus:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Difficulty breathing
