In late 2019, a novel coronavirus, now designated SARS-CoV-2, was identified as the cause of an outbreak of acute respiratory illness in Wuhan, a city in China. In February 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) designated the disease COVID-19, which stands for coronavirus disease 2019 **1

Helpful Information

The information below is based on current facts from the CDC

Spread is thought to occur mostly from person-to-person via respiratory droplets among close contacts. Close contact is defined as being within approximately 6 feet (2 meters) of a person with COVID-19 for a prolonged period of time OR having direct contact with infectious secretions from a patient with COVID-19. Infectious secretions may include sputum, serum, blood, and respiratory droplets. **2

Thought to be within 14 day following exposure, with most cases 4-5 days after exposure.

Fever, Fatigue, Dry cough,  Myalgias, Dyspnea.

Individuals of any age can acquire COVID-19, although middle-aged adults and older are most susceptible. Older age is associated with increased mortality. 3 Symptomatic infections in children appear uncommon and is usually mild if present. 

No vaccine or specific treatment for COVID-19 is available; care is supportive.6

–Based on the person’s case, the decision is made to initiate home care/isolation or be managed at the hospital.

-Expected Course: Recovery times appear to be ~2 weeks for a mild infection and ~3-6 weeks for severe disease.**9  

Call your primary physician’s office if you are experiencing symptoms and have encountered anyone who has tested positive. 

-The best prevention remains taking regular health precautions such as covering your mouth with a tissue or your elbow if you sneeze or cough, washing your hands with soap and water, and staying home if you are sick.

— The California Department of Public Health, along with the CDC, does not recommend that healthy people wear masks at this time. However, masks are recommended to limit the spread of disease for people who are exhibiting respiratory symptoms.

Illness due to COVID-19 infection is generally mild, especially for children and young adults. However, it can cause serious illness: about 1 in every 5 people who catch it need hospital care. It is therefore quite normal for people to worry about how the COVID-19 outbreak will affect them and their loved ones.”

–“We can channel our concerns into actions to protect ourselves, our loved ones and our communities. First and foremost among these actions is regular and thorough hand-washing and good respiratory hygiene. Secondly, keep informed and follow the advice of the local health authorities including any restrictions put in place on travel, movement, and gatherings.”

Pregnant women: Minimal information is available regarding COVID-19 during pregnancy. The intrauterine or perinatal transmission has not been identified

–Breastfeeding women: It is unknown whether the virus can be transmitted through breast milk; however, droplet transmission could occur through close contact during breastfeeding.
