Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that can cause either mild illness, such as a cold, or can make people sick with pneumonia. The COVID-19 coronavirus is a new virus. Although there are no specific vaccines or treatments available now, medication and vaccine research is underway.
It is important to know that most people with COVID-19 will fully recover. People who are most at risk for severe illness are those who have health conditions including:
If you have one of these conditions, take extra precautions and call us if you notice any symptoms.
Because COVID-19 is new, we are learning new things every day. You should stay informed by visiting cdc.gov or nys.gov or call the New York Coronavirus hotline at 888-364-3065. Remember, not all of the information you may hear from other people or on the internet is true.
Call your health center if you have flu-like symptoms such as a fever, cough or shortness of breath. If you call first, we can prepare so we can take care of you and so it is less likely you will pass any illness to others. If you have difficulty breathing, call 911.
At this time, it is important to stay home as much as possible. You should only leave your home if you need medical attention or other necessities, like groceries. Pay attention to instructions from Governor Cuomo and local authorities. New York needs everyone to do their part to slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
