What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a highly contagious coronavirus that is easily spread when an infected person talks, coughs, or sneezes, causing respiratory droplets to permeate the air around them. COVID-19 symptoms range from none-at-all to severe illness and even death. People can spread COVID-19 to others while being asymptomatic and not even knowing they are infected. 

 The best way to protect yourself against COVID-19 is to get vaccinated. Hand-washing, maintaining a safe distance from others, and wearing a mask in public are key to lessening both your and others’ exposure to the coronavirus.
