About COVID-19
The COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus, which is believed to have first emerged in Wuhan, China in December 2019. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that can cause respiratory illness such as the common cold, or more severe illness such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).

According to the CDC, current understanding about how the coronavirus spreads is largely based on what is known about similar coronaviruses. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person, but it may be possible that a person can contract the illness by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes.

Clinical presentation of confirmed cases of COVID-19 have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death. Symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.
Currently, there is no treatment or vaccine available to treat or prevent COVID-19, but the best way to protect yourself from contracting or spreading viruses is to practice social distancing and to follow good, common hygiene practices.

• Frequent hand washing w/ soap & water, or use 60% or greater alcohol-based hand sanitizer if no access to water.
• Discuss with your employer if telecommuting/working from home options are available.
• Store a two-week supply of water and food.
• Periodically check your regular prescription drugs to ensure a three-month supply in your home.
• Have any nonprescription drugs and other health supplies on hand, including pain relievers, stomach remedies, cough and cold medicines, fluids with electrolytes, and vitamins.
• Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• If you are sick, stay home.

Flu activity remains high in NJ, and it is not too late to get the flu shot. The influenza vaccine does not protect against any coronavirus infection, but it can help keep you healthy during the flu season.
