Quick facts and prevention tips

Commonly known as ďcoronavirus,Ē the COVID-19 virus is a respiratory illness.
Currently, the risk of getting coronavirus in the U.S. is low.
But if the illness does spread, seniors and people with chronic health conditions are at higher risk, just as they are with seasonal flu.

To reduce the spread of disease, CDC recommends using common-sense prevention practices:

Get a flu shot, if you havenít already
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.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
For people at higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19, the CDC recommends:

Stocking up on supplies
Taking everyday precautions to keep space between yourself and others
In public, keep away from others who are sick, limit close contact, and wash hands often
Avoid crowds as much as possible
Avoid cruise travel and non-essential air travel
During a COVID-19 outbreak in your community, stay home as much as possible to further reduce your risk of being exposed
NOTE: Dangerous fake cures and treatments, scams, and misinformation are spreading online and on social media. Jump to our Fake Cures section below to get the latest news and debunk dangerous false information.

Where to get the latest updates on coronavirus

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is monitoring the situation closely and is the best source of information about COVID-19 (coronavirus).

For the latest information and recommendations, visit the CDCís Situation Summary page.
And check the CDCís quick tip sheet Share Facts, Not Fear for key coronavirus facts that put a stop to rumors and misinformation.
