About COVID-19  – Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

COVID-19 is a new coronavirus that has not been previously seen in humans. There are many types of coronaviruses that commonly cause mild upper-respiratory tract illness (i.e. coughing). COVID-19 has now been detected in more than 100 countries internationally. Help us stop the stigma against specific racial or ethnic groups by sharing facts about how the virus spreads. Here are more answers to Frequently Asked Questions and you can also find them in Spanish.

There are simple, everyday precautionary actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • 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.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze (and throw it in the trash right after) or use the inside of your elbow.
  • Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily using a regular household disinfecting spray or wipe.
