What is the risk of COVID-19?
According to recent reports from the CDC, the
immediate health risk from COVID-19 is low at this time for most of the
population. However, older adults and individuals with chronic medical
conditions like heart disease, diabetes and lung disease are at higher
risk to get very sick.
Because this is a rapidly evolving situation, continue to use the CDC guidance on COVID-19, as the CDC has the most up-to-date information and recommendations.
