General Information on COVID-19
COVID 19 belongs to a family of viruses that can cause the common cold. This virus originated in animals and then jumped over to human hosts. For the most part, it doesn’t significantly affect young and/or healthy persons. Casualties usually arise in the elderly and those who have significant medical problems.
COVID 19 spreads via contact with an infected individual or their body fluids (eg. saliva, sputum, stool). It is NOT airborne. Handwashing is the most important defense against the virus.
Symptoms of COVID-19:
The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to other respiratory illnesses including the flu and common cold. They include coughing, fever, sore throat and difficulty breathing.
If you become sick or display symptoms of the above, we request that you please disclose this information to our staff in consideration for others.
