What is Coronavirus (COVID-19)?

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. For more information see the CDC COVID-19 FAQ page.

What is Social Distancing?  Why is it Important?

The COVID-19 virus primarily spreads when one person breathes in droplets that are produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. An infected person could spread the virus by touching a surface. The coronavirus could remain on that surface and someone else could touch it and then touch their mouth, nose, or eyes.

Social distancing is actions taken to stop or slow down the spread of a contagious disease. It means maintaining enough distance (6 feet or more) between yourself and another person to avoid spreading the virus. School closures, directives to work from home, library closings, and canceling meetings and larger events help enforce social distancing at a community level.
