What you need to know about Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Stopping the Spread of Germs

According to the CDC, symptoms of the virus most commonly include fever with cough, and shortness of breath. Some people may have fewer or no symptoms at all. The virus is likely spread from cough and sneeze droplets or close contact with an infected individual.

The New York State Department of Health also recommends the following ways to minimize the spread of all respiratory viruses, including COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Stay home when you or your child are sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing. lf you use a tissue, throw it in the trash.
  • Routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
