Frequently ask Questions about COVID-19
The Basics
What is a novel coronavirus?
A novel coronavirus is a new coronavirus that has not been previously identified. The virus causing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is not the same as the coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold.
A diagnosis with coronavirus 229E, NL63, OC43, or HKU1 is not the same as a COVID-19 diagnosis. Patients with COVID-19 will be evaluated and cared for differently than patients with common coronavirus diagnosis.
How is the virus spread?
• There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
• The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
• The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
o Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
o Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
• These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
How do I protect myself?
Clean your hands often
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
• If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Avoid close contact
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick
• Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
Does the CDC recommend the use of facemask to prevent COVID-19?
CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19. You should only wear a mask if a healthcare professional recommends it. A facemask should be used by people who have COVID-19 and are showing symptoms. This is to protect others from the risk of getting infected. The use of facemasks also is crucial for health workers and other people who are taking care of someone infected with COVID-19 in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).

Will the warm weather stop the outbreak of COVID-19?
It is not yet known whether weather and temperature impact the spread of COVID-19. Some other viruses, like the common cold and flu, spread more during cold weather months but that does not mean it is impossible to become sick with these viruses during other months. At this time, it is not known whether the spread of COVID-19 will decrease when weather becomes warmer. There is much more to learn about the transmissibility, severity, and other features associated with COVID-19 and investigations are ongoing.

Should I be tested for COVID-19?
Not everyone needs to be tested for COVID-19. Here is some information that might help in making decisions about seeking care or testing.
• Most people have mild illness and are able to recover at home.
• There is no treatment specifically approved for this virus.
• Testing results may be helpful to inform decision-making about who you come in contact with.
CDC has guidance for who should be tested, but decisions about testing are at the discretion of state and local health departments and/or individual clinicians.
• Clinicians should work with their state and local health departments to coordinate testing through public health laboratories, or work with clinical or commercial laboratories.
What to do should I do after I am tested?
• If you test positive for COVID-19, see If You Are Sick or Caring for Someone.
• If you test negative for COVID-19, you probably were not infected at the time your specimen was collected. However, that does not mean you will not get sick. It is possible that you were very early in your infection at the time of your specimen collection and that you could test positive later, or you could be exposed later and then develop illness. In other words, a negative test result does not rule out getting sick later.
CDC expects that widespread transmission of COVID-19 in the United States will occur. In the coming months, most of the U.S. population will be exposed to this virus. You should continue to practice all the protective measures recommended to keep yourself and others free from illness. See How to Protect Yourself.

A- Adore – Spend time praising God for who He is. This is a time of worship, an opportunity for you to meditate on and praise Him because of His character and specifically the new attributes you are learning about God. It’s helpful here to base your prayers of adoration on specific scripture. For example, if we were studying God as our provider we may pray back Matthew 6:33 and say, “God, I praise you that you promise to provide us all things…that when we seek first your kingdom and your righteous, you will give us all these things and even more.”

C – Confess – this is when we confess our sins to God because “If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). We ask God to show us our sin and then we agree with Him on the areas we have fallen short. We may confess specific ways we have not fully believed God to be all He claims to be in His Word- sovereign, wise, love, justice, etc. For example, “Forgive me, Lord, for not believing you are my Provider – able and willing to provide for me in every detail of my life….to provide the finances, the protection, the job opportunities, the relationships, etc.”

T – Thanks – this is a chance to thank God for what He has done in your life. Note the difference between adoration (praising God for who He is) and thanksgiving (praising God for what He’s done). Thank Him for anything and everything….but especially for the specific ways He has revealed the character trait you are studying in your life. Foe example, as you study God as your provider, you might thank Him for providing a financial raise, a surprise note of encouragement, or the answer to a prayer.

S – Supplication – this is where you bring specific request and needs for yourself and others to God. It’s important to note that in general, it’s most appropriate to make our request known to God after we’ve spent time praising Him for who He is, confessing on sin and need for Him , and giving thanks. At this point, we have a more accurate view of God and ourselves; our hearts are more full aligned with His will and we can pray, trusting the Holy Spirit to bring to mind specific needs in accordance with His desires.
