What is COVID-19?

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory disease caused by a new virus first identified in Wuhan, China. It has now been detected in 37 countries, including cases in the United States. Currently there are no confirmed cases of novel coronavirus in New Hanover or Pender Counties.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in many different species of animals. Symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.

About 80 percent of COVID-19 cases are mild. Many people may not even realize they are sick. Those at greatest risk of complications if infected with COVID-19 are the elderly and those with immune deficiencies and chronic health issues.

What are the symptoms of coronavirus?

Symptoms may appear anywhere between 2-14 days after exposure.

How does coronavirus spread?

According to the CDC, Coronavirus spreads from person-to-person.

  1. Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
