About the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The novel coronavirus known as COVID-19 that originated in China is making international headlines. It’s important to know that the risk of contracting this coronavirus is extremely low
in the United States. Currently, only people who have lived in or traveled to China (Wuhan) have contracted the coronavirus and there are no reported cases of person-to-person transmission in the U.S. A greater health concern for us in South Florida is the seasonal flu
. Be sure that your family members get flu vaccines and wash hands frequently to avoid the seasonal flu.
