COVID-19 is an infectious disease, caused by a coronavirus not found in people before and causes viral respiratory illness. The disease is thought to spread by nose and mouth droplets when someone who is infected coughs, sneezes or exhales, landing in the mouths or noses of people nearby. It may be possible for people to breathe the droplets into their lungs and for that reason it is important to stay 6 feet away from other people in public. At home, someone who is sick should stay alone, in one room, as much as possible. Droplets can also land on surfaces and objects that other people then touch, making it important to wash your hands before you touch your mouth, nose, face or eyes. Infected people may be able to spread the disease before they have symptoms or feel sick. We’ll share related news and stories here.
