What you should know about coronavirus

The novel coronavirus spreads easily and is causing respiratory illness around the world. Symptoms of COVID-19 can include fever, cough, and trouble breathing. While many patients are asymptomatic or experience only mild symptoms, some people develop more severe complications such as pneumonia, which can be life-threatening. Many of the people who experience severe symptoms are older or have other chronic medical conditions like heart disease, lung disease, and diabetes.

If you are concerned about possible COVID-19 symptoms or exposure, isolate yourself from others and consider using our online assessment for advice on what to do next.
