COVID-19 Facts

What Kills The Virus?

The most important thing you can do is wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds after you’ve touched any surface that could possibly be contaminated. And try not to touch your face.


How Long Can The Virus Live On Surfaces?

We do not have a definitive answer at this point, but this virus may behave like other coronaviruses, which linger on surfaces for a few hours, or up to several days.


How Is It Transmitted?

The virus is mainly spread when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales within 6 feet, or 2 meters from another person.


If I Catch It, Will I Get Seriously Ill?

Although young adults are also falling critically ill, the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions are most at risk for developing serious complications.


Treatments, Vaccines, Testing

The CDC advises that you contact your state or local health department to learn about safety measures put in place in your own community.
