COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus)
Guidance on how to prevent and respond to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is rapidly evolving. The California Department of Public Health (CA DPH) continues to work closely with the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to monitor the situation and provide updated information.
It is understandable to feel uncertain or anxious during a public health crisis, and we need to remember to avoid making assumptions about others' perceived symptoms or any characteristics of identity. Currently, there is no vaccine to prevent the novel coronavirus infection. The best way to prevent infection is to take precautionary steps.
Here are CDC recommendations to take everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses:
The CDC does not recommend the use of face masks for the general U.S. public to protect themselves from respiratory viruses, including the novel coronavirus.
The best way to protect your health is by practicing preventive measures listed above and getting a flu shot to help prevent illness and symptoms similar to the novel coronavirus.
