What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a respiratory disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, a new coronavirus discovered in 2019. This type of virus infects humans and animals, but this strain has not been seen in humans before 2019.

For more information, visit the CDC's website.

How does COVID-19 spread?

COVID-19 is spread in three main ways:

  • Breathing in air when close to an infected person who is exhaling small droplets and particles that contain the virus.
  • Having these small droplets and particles that contain virus land on the eyes, nose, or mouth, especially through splashes and sprays like a cough or sneeze.
  • Touching eyes, nose, or mouth with hands that have the virus on them.

For more information, visit the CDC's website.

What are COVID-19 variants?

COVID-19 variantes, like the delta variant, are strains of the virus that causes COVID-19. Numerous variants of the virus that causes COVID-19 are being tracked in the United States and globally during this pandemic. To learn more, please visit the CDC's COVID-19 variants page.

What are symptoms of COVID-19?

People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

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

What should I do if I think I've been exposed to COVID-19, or have symptoms?

First, stay calm. If you notice COVID-19 symptoms, you should isolate from others as much as possible. Please contact your provider or nearest clinic as soon as possible for proper screening and assessment, which could include testing.

How can I stay safe during COVID-19?

Masks, vaccines, hand washing and social distancing are all layers of protection we have in order to fight COVID-19. The more layers we use, the better protected we'll be against the virus and spreading it to others.
