2019 Novel Coronavirus

​​Health officials across the country are closely monitoring the 2019 novel coronavirus. Currently, there have been no confirmed cases of novel coronavirus in Minnesota.

When a new disease is circulating, it’s natural for people to ask what they can do to protect themselves and their families. The best guidance at this point is to take the same precautions recommended for avoiding colds and flu: People should stay home when they are sick, cover their cough, and practice good hand washing. Additionally, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that travelers avoid nonessential travel to China.
