COVID-19: Information for Communities and the General Public (source: https://www.nj.gov/health/cd/topics/covid2019_community.shtml)
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals.
COVID-19 (“coronavirus disease 2019”) is the disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in humans in Wuhan, China in December 2019.
At this time, most people in the United States will have little immediate risk of exposure to this virus. This virus is NOT currently spreading widely in the United States.
Steps you can take to prevent spread of flu and the common cold will also help prevent coronavirus:
Wash hands often with soap and water. If not available, use hand sanitizer.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
Avoid contact with people who are sick
Stay home while you are sick and avoid contact with others
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing
Currently there are no vaccines available to prevent novel coronavirus infections.
Stay home when you are sick. Earned Sick Leave is the law in New Jersey.
Everyone can do their part to help us respond to this emerging public health threat:
It’s currently flu and respiratory disease season and CDC recommends getting a flu vaccine, taking everyday preventive actions to help stop the spread of germs, and taking flu antivirals if prescribed.
If you are a healthcare provider, be on the look-out for:
People who recently traveled from China or another affected area and who have symptoms associated with COVID-19, and
If you have been in China or another affected area or have been exposed to someone sick with COVID-19 in the last 14 days, you will face some limitations on your movement and activity for up to 14 days. Please follow instructions during this time. Your cooperation is integral to the ongoing public health response to try to slow spread of this virus.
