COVID-19: What You Need to Know   [open pdf - 399KB]

From the Document: "COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. There are many types of coronaviruses, but COVID-19 is caused by a new coronavirus never previously seen in humans. [...] COVID-19 can spread to people who are in close contact (within about 6 feet) with an infected person when that person coughs or sneezes. COVID-19 can also live on surfaces, but it is not known for how long. [...] People at high risk for severe illness are those over 65 years old or those with other health conditions, such as lung disease, heart disease, diabetes, or cancer. People in close contact with the infected--such as in-home caretakers and intimate partners-- are also at high risk."
