Facts about COVID-19 Corona virus:

  • There is no data (as of now) about risks of COVID-19 during conception and pregnancy.
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website is the recommended source for up-to-date, detailed information about COVID-19.
  • The vast majority of people who contract COVID-19 will not require hospitalization; symptoms are often mild enough that one can recover at home.
  • If you have flu-like symptoms, please contact your primary care physician or UNC Health’s Dedicated number for Covid-19 at Health Link – 888-850-2684
  • The steps to protect yourself from COVID-19 are generally the same as those for the flu.
  • The best prevention is through washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands. If you don’t have a tissue available, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • The CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19; facemasks should be used only by people who show symptoms of these diseases to help prevent the spread of the disease to others.
