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. It is not the same as the human coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold. Other outbreaks of coronaviruses, like “SARS” and “MERS”, have caused serious illness. As we learn more about the virus, guidance and recommendations may change.
