HOW DOES COVID-19 SPREAD?

Most human coronaviruses commonly cause mild to moderate illness in people.  At this time, initial reports indicate that COVID-19 may be spread when a sick person coughs or sneezes via respiratory droplets.  The information about COVID-19 is still being studied as new cases and data become available. 

If you develop a fever and symptoms or respiratory illness, such as cough or shortness of breath stay home from work, dont go out in public spaces, self-isolate in your home and call ahead to a healthcare professional

If a person has no fever or symptoms, but had either returned from China, Italy, and Iran or had close contact with someone showing symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or shortness of breath, they should pay close attention to their health and monitor if any symptoms occur within 14 days of contact.  If you develop fever or any of these symptoms, call ahead to a healthcare professional and provide details of the contact and recent travel.                      


Healthcare professionals should report cases and work closely with the MCRHC or their local health department to determine next steps and if further testing is needed.
