There are many types of coronaviruses currently circulating in Colorado and the U.S. that cause respiratory illness. These illnesses are NOT COVID-19.

As with other respiratory viruses, it is recommended that people protect themselves and others by practicing everyday actions:

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub when soap and water is not available.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid close contact with anyone that is experiencing symptoms of illness.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Get an annual flu vaccine if you have not had one.
