Residents should take extra precaution when it comes to social distancing guidelines.  Person-to-person spread of COVID-19 appears to be mainly between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.  It also may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.

Signs and symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.  Preliminary data suggests that older adults and people with underlying health conditions or compromised immune systems seem to be at greater risk of developing serious illness from the virus.
