Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

COVID-19 is a new disease caused by a novel (or new) coronavirus that has not previously been seen in humans.

Other outbreaks of coronaviruses, like “SARS” and “MERS”, have caused serious illness. As we learn more about the virus, guidance and recommendations may change.
