How COVID-19  Spreads

Person-to-person spread

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

Watch for symptoms

Reported illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death for confirmed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases.

The following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure.*

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

Call your doctor if you…

Have recently traveled from an area with widespread or ongoing community spread of COVID-19.

So...
I know that everyone is bombarded with news of the Corona virus, COVID-19. The Governor has officially declared state of emergency.  We will just ask you to keep washing your hands, and stay as safe as you can! If you are a likely target for this virus, stay away from large crowds, and do what you can to keep yourself healthy.  If you are not feeling well, please stay home, and if you need to, call ahead to the emergency room/ doctor's office, and get yourself tested and treated!

As of right now, Boston Public Schools will be open Monday, but there will be a press conference on Sunday, so we'll wait to see what he says then.
