  • Key Messages: 
  • Community response is critical in this emergency; public health officials do not know where the virus is in all cases and many people will experience mild symptoms, never knowing they have COVID-19. This is incredibly dangerous because those people can still infect their neighbors, their families and their co-workers.
  • Self-isolate if you have COVID-19 type symptoms (fever, cough, and shortness of breath). Go to the hospital only if you need urgent/emergent care (for instance, if you experience severe respiratory issues or difficulty breathing). View information on isolation and quarantine.
