Coronaviruses are respiratory viruses and are generally spread through droplets from coughs and sneezes of an infected person to another person. Information about how this novel coronavirus spreads is still limited, however, the health risk to Massachusetts residents is LOW. To help protect yourself against colds and any types of the flu, REMEMBER:
- Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds
- Cover your coughs and sneezes
- Stay home if you are sick
