Coronavirus (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Most people infected with the virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. However, some people become seriously ill or require medical attention. Nearly 650,000 Americans have died from COVID-19 since March 2020.
The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is to be well informed about the disease and how the virus spreads. You can protect yourself and others from infection by social distancing, wearing a properly fitted mask, washing your hands, and getting vaccinated.
COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalizations, and deaths. Nearly 53% of adults in the United States are vaccinated against COVID-19.
Vaccinations are free and do not require ID, proof of residency, citizenship, or insurance.
