  1. The current Coronavirus is a variant of many other coronaviruses that have been around for years causing colds. This one is different because it can cause a more serious illness.
  2. The Coronavirus is spread by droplets that are emitted when we sneeze or cough.

  4. Be sure to wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your face
  5. Symptoms associated with this novel Coronavirus are fever, cough and sometimes shortness of breath.
  6. TESTING – requires a nasal or throat swab –
  7. We may need to work from home or cancel planned travel.
