What are the symptoms for the virus?

    Symptoms are similar to the flu and include runny nose, headache, cough, sore throat, fever and a general feeling of being unwell. This is more common in people with cardiopulmonary disease and people with weakened immune systems. Symptoms may appear between two and 14 days of exposure. The virus is spread through respiratory droplets when someone with the virus coughs or sneezes.

    How can I prevent getting the virus?

    There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent the illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, the CDC always recommends everyday preventative actions to help stop the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

    *Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

    *Practice social distancing, and avoid heavily populated areas.

    *Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.*

    Stay home when you are sick.

    *Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

    *Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

    *Follow the CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.*CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.

    *Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others.

    *Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

    *If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
