What is the Coronavirus COVID-19 and Why is it Important to Know About It?

COVID-19 is a coronavirus strain that has only spread in people since December 2019 and originated in China.  Coronaviruses have been around for a very long time.  Swine Flu, SARS, and MERS are all examples of previous coronaviruses.  This strain of coronavirus is new and has the potential to cause severe illness and pneumonia.  The newness of this strain and the highly contagious nature of it is what has health experts concerned.

Be Wary of False Rumors, Scams and Misinformation

There is a lot of information going around about cures, vaccines, how to get supplies and a lot of people putting out ways they can help you get these things.  Most of this information is false and most of these people are trying to scam you.  Please collect your information from reliable sources like the WHO, CDC, or State Health Departments.  These organizations are working hard to provide you with up to date reliable information to keep you safe.  For more information about this, FEMA has created a website to discuss this issue.  Also the Federal Trade Commission has a website for scams and how to avoid them.  The information provided below is pulled from these sources.  Please check back often for updated information.

PROTECT YOURSELF & THOSE AROUND YOU

At this point it is about protecting yourself from possible infection and mitigating the effects on everyone.  This is very important since it spreads from person to person contact.  Health Experts call this "Flattening the Curve."  The more we can protect ourselves from getting infected or spreading the virus the better our Health System Infrastructure can take care of those that need it.
