About Coronavirus

COVID-2019 is a respiratory infection caused by a novel (new) virus that arose from the area of Wuhan, China, in December 2019. Outbreaks of novel virus infections among people are always of public health concern. The risk from these outbreaks depends on characteristics of the virus, including how well it spreads between people, the severity of resulting illness, and the medical or other measures available to control the impact of the virus (for example, vaccine or treatment medications).

For additional information about COVID-19, including how it spreads, symptoms, prevention, treatment and preparedness, please visit the CDC coronavirus website or the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) website.

Prevention

To protect yourself from the spread of viruses follow our guidelines for campus health and safety.
