The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers guidance to help the public prevent the spread of the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions, such as heart or lung disease, or diabetes, are at higher risk for developing serious complications from COVID-19 illness.
Currently, there is no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid exposure to the virus.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. Some recent studies have suggested that COVID-19 may be spread by people who do not show symptoms.
