How to Prevent Getting The Coronavirus

Carter Smith, Staff Writer

The CDC recommends that you wash your hands frequently. Also, that you have masks, sanitizers, and eye protection. But, there is also a new virus called SARS-Cov-2 which is also contagious. People who are sick are recommended to stay home because of the risk of them infecting someone else. The CDC doesn’t recommend that people who are well should wear face masks. They recommend that people with coronavirus should wear a face mask to prevent infecting other people.

The symptoms of the coronavirus include having a fever, coughing, shortness of breath, and pneumonia. If you are going through one of these symptoms you are recommended to going to the hospital. There is also testing for the coronavirus through the California Department of Public Health. It’s also recommended that you don’t travel to other places because the virus can spread. Several geographic areas have had widespread transmission of the coronavirus: China, Iran, Italy, Japan, and South Korea.
