According to the CDC, the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when people are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). Because the virus can spread quickly from person to person through normal community activities, most states have put "stay at home" orders in place to slow the spread of the disease. While many people only have mild symptoms and recover quickly, others can experience pneumonia and sever respiratory distress. To protect yourself, stay in your home, limit contact with others, and wash hands frequently.
Avoid Coronavirus Scams - Unfortunately, scammers never take a vacation. Due to the recent announcement about stimulus checks, there are new telephone and email scams where an individual will call or email you trying to pretend they have important information about your money. They want to get private information like your social security number and bank account information in order to steal from you. Never give out your private information or banking information.
