COVID-19 Information & Resources
About Coronavirus (COVID-19)
COVID-19 is believed to be spread mainly by coughing, sneezing or direct contact with someone who is sick with COVID-19 or with surfaces they have recently touched.
Symptoms for COVID-19 are similar to those for influenza or other respiratory illnesses. They can range from mild to servere and include fever, cough and difficulty breathing.
