We prepared these 5 facts around COVID-19 (CDC.GOV).

  1. Diseases can make anyone sick regardless of their race or ethnicity.
    Fear and anxiety about COVID-19 can cause people to avoid or reject others even though they are not at risk for spreading the virus.
  2. For most people, the immediate risk of becoming seriously ill from the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to be low.
    Older adults and people of any age with underlying health conditions, such as diabetes, lung disease, or heart disease, are at greater risk of severe illness from COVID-19.
  3. Someone who has completed quarantine or has been released from isolation does not pose a risk of infection to other people.
