Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses. Common human coronaviruses can cause mild to moderate upper-respiratory tract illnesses, such as the common cold. There have been coronaviruses that have caused more severe illness, such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle ease respiratory syndrome (MERS). 

Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms or combinations of symptoms may have COVID-19:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Or at least two of these symptoms:

    • Fever
    • Chills
    • Repeated shaking with chills
    • Muscle pain

While there is no current vaccine to prevent infection with 2019-nCoV, as with other respiratory-transmitted diseases, there are certain preventative measures to help stop the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect touched objects and surfaces.

These measures are everyday habits that can help prevent the spread of several viruses.

Because this is a rapidly evolving situation, for the latest developments and additional guidance on the 2019-nCoV for the public, healthcare professionals, and travelers, visit the CDC and DSHS websites.
