Coronavirus Updates Available from CDC

Senior living leaders and communities can obtain accurate and continually updated information on the coronavirus via the Emergency Partners Information Connection (EPIC) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC link offers information about the virus, which was first detected in China and continues to expand. Patients with confirmed infection have reportedly had mild to severe respiratory illness with such symptoms as cough, fever, and shortness of breath. CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of any respiratory viruses, including: one, wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; two, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands; three, avoid close contact with people who are sick; remain at home while you are ill; and so forth.
