Q: What is 2019 Novel Coronavirus or COVID-19?

A: Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that usually cause mild illness, like the common cold. COVID-19 is a new virus within that family, which can cause illness that is more severe than the common cold.

Q: What is the risk to the U.S. public right now?

A: Experts predict that in the coming weeks and months, we can expect to see more cases in the United States and worldwide. “Community” spread is how the common cold and flu is transmitted — meaning people catch it from each other while going about their daily lives. Reported community spread of COVID-19 in parts of the U.S. raises the level of concern about the immediate threat for the affected communities.

Q: How do I prevent myself from becoming infected with COVID-19?

A: Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if you don’t have soap and water
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Encourage others to wash their hands, as well as cover their nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing
