What is COVID-19?

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person-to-person like the flu. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China.

What are the symptoms

According to the CDC, symptoms can include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

How does COVID-19 spread?

The virus spreads person-to-person like the flu.

How do I prevent spreading COVID-19?

Vaccines are the best form of defense against all COVID variants. Masks help prevent individuals from contracting and spreading the virus. The CDC continues to recommend wearing a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission, regardless of vaccination status. In addition, wash hands often, clean and disinfect household surfaces often, avoid crowds, and monitor for potential symptoms.

Should I get vaccinated?

Vaccines remain the best public health measure to protect people from COVID-19, slow transmission, and reduce the likelihood of new variants emerging. COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalizations, and death. The CDC recommends that everyone 5 years and older protect themselves from COVID-19 by getting fully vaccinated, and everyone ages 18 years and older get a booster shot.

With other variants, like Delta, vaccines have remained effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalizations, and death. The recent emergence of Omicron further emphasizes the importance of vaccination and boosters.

How should I protect myself against COVID-19?

The best way to protect yourself from COVID-19 is to become vaccinated and boosted. If you experience symptoms, contact a healthcare professional for COVID-19 testing. Additionally, wash your hands frequently, maintain social distancing, and stay home if you do not feel well.
