COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease)
COVID-19 is a communicable, respiratory disease that can cause severe illness in some people. COVID-19 is easily spread from person to person through respiratory droplets and aerosol particles released by people with COVID-19 during coughing, sneezing, singing, talking, and breathing.
Since 2019, the spread of COVID-19 has had a devastating impact around the world and across our state. However, with high levels of vaccination and widespread population immunity, the risk of severe COVID-19 disease, hospitalization, and death has been greatly reduced. We all need to continue to take steps to protect our communities and prevent COVID-19 from straining our health care systems.
