Covid-19

What you need to know about COVID-19

Covid-19, Sars CoV2, is a novel (new) corona virus that is believed to have jumped from the animal kingdom to humans in 2019. Persons aged 65 and older, people with underlying health conditions like chronic kidney disease, COPD, type 2 diabetes, sickle cell disease, immunocompromised, obesity with BMI of 30 or higher, and those with serious heart conditions such as heart failure, coronary artery disease and cardiomyopathies are at greatest risk for serious illness. Learn what you can do right now, even if you are not at greater risk of serious illness.

As communities around the country begin to open, we are witnessing the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccine. We are all eager to see loved ones, travel, visit local businesses, and safely get kids back in school this fall. Communities with low vaccination rates are at highest risk for outbreaks of COVID infections. With new and potentially dangerous strains, such as the Delta variant, it’s more important than ever for eligible adults and children to get vaccinated.

Where can I get a vaccine?

Vaccine is readily available at many locations throughout the Commonwealth.

How do I prevent and prepare?

The best way to prevent illness is to get vaccinated. You should also avoid others who are ill or exposing others if you are ill.

What if I have been exposed?

If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19, you can get tested at a testing site near you.


What should I do if I am sick?

Prevent spreading the disease to others by taking basic precautions and learn about new treatments that are now available.
