ABOUT THE COVID-19 VIRUS

COVID-19 causes a respiratory illness with fever and cough, may lead to severe pneumonia and is similar to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS).

Coronaviruses are part of a large family of viruses, which can sometimes cause lower-respiratory tract illnesses, such as pneumonia or bronchitis. Symptoms are similar to the flu and include runny nose, headache, cough, sore throat, fever and a general feeling of being unwell. This is more common in people with weakened immune systems.

At this time, it is believed that the virus is easily transmitted through person-to-person contact, especially in group settings and it is essential we work to slow transmission to the greatest extent possible.

Prevention tips

Although there is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19, the best way to prevent infection is to take these precautions:

  • 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 available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
