COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
A: The 2019 Novel Coronavirus, or COVID-19, is a new respiratory virus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.
A: This virus probably originally emerged from an animal source but is now spreading from person-to- person. It’s important to note that person-to-person spread can happen on a continuum. Some viruses are highly contagious (like measles), while other viruses are less so.
The virus that causes COVID-19 seems to be spreading sustainably in some affected geographic areas. Community spread means people have been infected with the virus in an area, including some who are not sure how or where they became infected.
There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19 respiratory infection. However, CCHHS recommends the following actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses:
• Get a seasonal flu shot.
• Wash hands frequently.
• Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth.
• Avoid contact with people who are sick.
• Cover your mouth with your upper sleeve or with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 information website to learn about how to protect yourself from respiratory illnesses, like COVID-19. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/index.html
CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19. You should only wear a mask if a healthcare professional recommends it. A facemask should be used by people who have COVID-19 and are showing symptoms. This is to protect others from the risk of getting infected. The use of facemasks also is crucial for health workers and other people who are taking care of someone infected with COVID-19 in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
A: Current symptoms reported for patients with 2019-nCoV have included mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough, and difficulty breathing.
A: Health officials are communicating with a wide array of partners to explain processes regarding testing and identifying people who could potentially be infected with the virus. A person will be considered for testing if they are experiencing respiratory symptoms and have one of three variables; contact with someone who was tested positive, traveled to China or other areas experiencing community spread of the virus or respiratory testing has not identified a known illness. COVID-19 testing is conducted at the Arizona State Public Health Laboratory.
