Frequently Asked Questions

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it has not been reported that the 2019 novel coronavirus spreads through the air. Experts agree that the primary way that COVID-19 is transmitted is through direct contact with either a surface that has the virus or with another person that is contagious.

The idea that COVID-19 may be affected by changes in weather is primarily based on other viral and bacterial diseases. Although it is possible to extrapolate some information by looking at similar viruses, it is not possible to know with complete accuracy how the novel coronavirus will react to changes in seasons. It is important to note regardless that COVID-19 is currently a global pandemic, which means that it exists in a variety of different climates and environments. As of right now, research for treatments & vaccinations along with prevention methods are the best courses of action to slow down this pandemic.

According to the CDC, there are a variety of symptoms that COVID-19 may cause. There have been some reports of asymptomatic patients. Based on what we currently know, the incubation period for COVID-19 is 2-14 days. If you have come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, you should self-quarantine regardless of lack of symptoms.

Recently, the CDC has updated their advice regarding wearing face masks. As of early April, the CDC has recommended that American citizens wear a cloth covering over their nose and mouth when in public spaces including grocery stores, outdoor areas, and other common public areas. The CDC recommends that medical masks including N-95 surgical masks are reserved for medical personnel.  

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 (coughing, fever, difficulty breathing), you should start by self-quarantining. The CDC does not recommend that everyone gets tested. Due to a shortage of testing kits nationwide, the CDC recommends that high risk individuals or individuals with severe symptoms seek medical help & testing. Whether or not you choose to get tested is your own choice, however, states and local health centers will make the final call on which patients they test. For many healthy individuals, COVID-19 is experienced as a mild illness that can be recovered from at home. At this time there is no specifically approved treatment for COVID-19. So, if you are not experiencing severe symptoms and you are not at a high risk, you may consider staying home and recovering on your own.

The CDC has recommended that some patients who experience mild symptoms and are not high risk, recover at home. If you stay home you are advised to do the following. Monitor your symptoms, if at any point you feel that you need emergency medical help, call your medical provider. Otherwise, your priority should be to not leave your home. If others live with you, quarantine in a separate room if possible, clean all commonly touched surfaces often, wear a face masks, and wash your hands regularly.
