COVID-19 is spread via respiratory droplets just like a cold or the flu. When an infected person coughs or sneezes OR if you touch a surface containing their respiratory droplets, you can become infected yourself through inhalation of the droplets.
It seems very contagious. Prevention and avoidance of those who are ill is key, BUT the fatality rate is quite low (3-4%), and most people experience mild symptoms with a full recovery! There is no need to panic, just be careful.
The best prevention medicine is cleanliness.
Right now, face masks are NOT recommended unless you have been told to wear one by your doctor.
Whether you think you have COVID-19 or any other illness, please stay home! Do not go in to work, school, church, the store, or anywhere else. Just rest!
Call your doctor before going in to to see them; they may have special instructions on how to come to the clinic or walk-in center. Follow their medical advice; you may be advised to stay home in quarantine for a period of time. Remember, you are probably contagious so be aware of your family members, friends, and community.
