From the New Jersey Department of Health:
At this time, most people in the United States will have community exposure to Coronavirus.
According to a study in The Journal of Pediatrics, the Coronavirus infection tends to be less severe in children, “with more than 90% having mild to moderate disease or even being asymptomatic”; however, “children may be a critical factor in the disease’s rapid spread”.
Steps you can take to prevent spread of flu and the common cold will also help prevent Coronavirus:
- Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds. If not available, use hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
- Avoid contact with people who are sick
- Practice social distancing by maintaining a minimum of 6 feet from others
- Stay home while you are sick and avoid contact with others
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing
