What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a new upper respiratory tract disease caused by a virus (coronavirus).

How does the virus spread?

The virus that causes COVID-19 spreads from mainly from person to person, through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.

What kind of tests are available for COVID-19?

Nasal swab for COVID-19 are available to tell us if you currently have the virus. A negative result means that you were probably not infected at the time sample was collected. However, you may test negative if the sample was collected too early in your infection. A positive result tells you have coronavirus and should take the necessary precautions.

Antibody tests for COVID-19 are available as a blood draw. A positive test result tells us that you might have antibodies from a previous infection with the virus that causes COVID-19, not if you currently have it. If you test negative, you might not have ever had COVID-19.

Should I get tested?

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been around anyone (within 6 feet distance) that was diagnosed with COVID-19 or if your school/ work requires you to.

How can I protect myself and my family?

    1. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
    2. Wear a face covering/mask.
    3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
    4. If you are sick, stay home and avoid close contact with people.
    5. When out in public stay 6 feet away from people.
    6. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects.
