What to do if you are sick with COVID-19
CDC is closely monitoring an outbreak of outbreak of novel (new) coronavirus disease (COVID-19), caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2, that was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China and which continues to expand. Chinese health officials have reported thousands of cases of COVID-19 in China, with the virus reportedly spreading from person-to-person in many parts of that country. Infections with the virus that causes COVID-19, most of them associated with travel from Wuhan, also are being reported in a growing number of international locations, including the United States.
The goal of the ongoing U.S. public health response is to contain this outbreak and prevent sustained spread of COVID-19 in this country. To read more about the situation summary, go to the CDC.
