Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases. COVID-19 first emerged in 2019 and has since spread around the globe. Common signs of infection have appeared 2-14 days after exposure and include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. Person-to-person spread has been confirmed and is thought to occur mainly through people in close contact with one another (within about 6 ft) via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or exhales. The Florida Department of Health recommends you protect yourself and others by getting a COVID-19 vaccine and wearing a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission. For unvaccinated individuals, frequent hand washing, avoiding touching your face, wearing a mask in public, and social distancing are recommended.*
