Coronavirus Disease 2019

COVID-19 is a respiratory disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Most people infected with the virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover with oral treatment or without requiring special treatment. However, some will become seriously ill and require medical attention. Older adults (especially those 50 years of age and older) and those with underlying medical conditions like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, or cancer are more likely to develop serious illness. The CDC recommends everyone 6 months of age and older get a COVID-19 vaccination, especially those at high risk of complications.
