What is COVID-19?

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses found mostly in animals. In humans, they can cause diseases ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The new coronavirus has been named SARS-CoV-2, and the disease that it causes is commonly known as COVID-19. While many COVID-19 characteristics are still unknown, mild to severe illness has been reported for confirmed cases. 

If you are concerned that you, or someone you have been exposed to, may be experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please self-isolate for 14 days.

See our Health FAQs.

Practice health habits.

Help reduce the risk of respiratory illnesses such as coronavirus, colds, and influenza:

  • Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
  • If a sink is not available, hand sanitizer can be used to clean hands if they are not visibly soiled. If they are visibly soiled, you can use an alcohol-based disposable hand wipe to remove the dirt and then use hand sanitizer.
  • Don't touch your face/eyes/mouth with unwashed hands.
  • When you sneeze or cough, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or the crease of 
your elbow and then wash your hands.
  • Stay home when you are ill. If you are showing symptoms, self-isolate immediately.
