COVID-19 Preparedness & Response
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH), and the Coastal Health District are closely monitoring an outbreak of COVID-19, a respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus. The virus was first detected in Wuhan City, China in December 2019, and continues to expand to other countries, including the United States.
Symptoms of COVID-19 may resemble the common cold or seasonal flu, which is a far greater risk this time of year.
The best way to prevent infection with any respiratory virus is to use the same preventative strategies used during a normal cold and flu season:
- get a flu shot,
- wash hands regularly,
- cover coughs and sneezes, and
- stay home when experiencing symptoms of illness until they resolve.
It is important to remember that viruses cannot target people from specific populations, ethnicities or racial backgrounds and this type of stigma should be avoided. The CDC shares more information about stigma related to COVID-19 and how to prevent it.
