COVID-19: Disease Information

The  Covid-19 Coronavirus causes mild to severe illness in the lungs.

  • Symptoms: People who are ill with the virus may have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing.
  • Incubation: We do not know how long it takes for signs of illness to show up after someone is exposed to COVID-19. With other coronaviruses, signs of illness usually show up 2–14 days after a person is exposed to the virus.
  • Level of Risk: The level of risk to the general population is low. Early information suggests that older adults and people with underlying health conditions may have a higher risk of severe illness and complications.
  • Transmission: We are still learning about how this new coronavirus spreads. Other coronaviruses spread from animals or through droplets from the coughs and sneezes of people who have the illness. 
  • Prevention: The best way to protect yourself is to avoid exposure to the virus. Consult CDC’s travel website for any travel advisories and steps to protect yourself if you plan to travel outside of the US.
  • When to Seek Treatment: Always contact your healthcare provider before going to the Emergency Department.  Oregon Health Authority has a video describing what steps to take.
