Stanislaus County Public Health is closely monitoring the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. In collaboration with our local, state, and federal partners, we continue to provide guidance and education to our community and partners on how to prevent the spread of COVID -19 in our community.
Coronaviruses are a large group of viruses that are common among animals and humans. In rare cases, animal coronaviruses can be transmitted from animals to humans. This novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 is a newly discovered coronavirus that has not been previously detected in animals or humans. The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” and the disease it causes has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”). The source of this virus is not yet known.
The COVID-19 virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose or mouth when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in mouths, noses, or on surfaces or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus. These everyday habits can help prevent the spread of COVID-19:
The COVID-19 virus affects different people in different ways. COVID-19 is a respiratory disease and most infected people will develop mild to moderate symptoms and recover without requiring special treatment. These symptoms may appear 2-14 days after being exposed to COVID-19.
If you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19 get medical attention immediately. Emergency warning signs can include*:
Based on currently available information and clinical expertise, older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Those at high-risk for severe illness from COVID-19 include:
Other high-risk conditions can include:
To date, there is no specific treatment or medicine recommended to prevent or treat COVID-19. However, those infected with the virus should receive appropriate care to relieve and treat symptoms. Only take medication that has been prescribed by a healthcare provider.
Most people with illnesses due to common coronavirus infections recover at home. For patients who are more severely ill, hospitals can provide supportive care. We are continuing to learn more about this novel coronavirus and treatment may change over time.
If you have coronavirus symptoms and think you need testing, contact your healthcare provider. If you need to go to the hospital, call ahead so they can prepare for your arrival. If you need to call 911, tell the 911 operator you’re experiencing coronavirus symptoms so the ambulance provider can prepare to treat you safely.
