We know that there is a lot of information about COVID-19 and we want to provide you with resources that can help you stay informed and make decisions.
The coronavirus, or COVID-19, is a virus which means someone infected with coronavirus will most likely feel symptoms similar to the flu. It's important to know that 80% of people who get the virus will feel better within a matter of days. Some people who get the virus will not feel sick at all. The people at risk of more severe complications from COVID-19 are those that are older or have other health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, asthma, or other lung problems.
