About the Virus

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 illnesses, such as 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 a common coronavirus diagnosis.

Current symptoms reported for patients with COVID-19 have included mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough, and difficulty breathing.

More from the California Department of Public Health.

The current understanding of how the virus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) spreads is primarily based on what is known about similar coronaviruses. COVID-19 is a new disease; there is more to learn about how it spreads, the severity of the illness it causes, and to what extent it may spread in the United States.

Person-to-person spread

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person to person.

  • Between people in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
  • Through respiratory droplets and aerosols are 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.

Not directly. Though preventing influenza via a flu shot may keep your immune system healthy enough to combat other pathogens such as COVID-19.
  • Keep your immune system healthy by getting plenty of sleep, nutrition, stress relief, and exercise
  • Get Vaccinated: More information is available at from Butte County Public Health
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes
  • Handwashing is the single most effective means to prevent the spread of disease.  Washing up to the wrists, between the fingers, and under the nails for 20 seconds or more with soap and warm water is highly effective at destroying pathogens.  In the absence of soap and water, an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol may be used and the hands should be rubbed together vigorously until completely dry. Hands should be washed often, especially after using the restroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, sneezing, or coughing.
  • Comply with state orders to stay home unless it is necessary for you to leave.
