COVID-19 is caused by a coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses, some causing illness in people and others that circulate amongst animals, including camels, cats and bats. It is suspected that COVID-19 originated from an animal source. More information about the source and spread of COVID-19 is available on the Situation Summary: Source and Spread of the Virus.What are the symptoms and complications that COVID-19 can cause?How does the virus spread?How long can SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, survive on surfaces?When does a person get released from isolation?What is community spread?
How to keep yourself and your loved ones safe:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
- It is especially important to clean hands after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact (within 6 feet) with others
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue (not your hands), then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Consider wearing cloth face coverings, if it can be safely managed, in public settings where other physical distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
The Arizona DHSS has an excellent resource monitoring hospital and ICU occupancy over the current epidemic.
Watch for symptoms

These symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure (based on the incubation period of MERS-CoV viruses).
- Shortness of breath
Why are we seeing a rise in cases?
The number of cases of COVID-19 being reported in the United States is rising due to increased laboratory testing and reporting across the country. The growing number of cases in part reflects the rapid spread of COVID-19 as many U.S. states and territories experience community spread. More detailed and accurate data will allow us to better understand and track the size and scope of the outbreak and strengthen prevention and response efforts.
CDC recommends expanded and laser focused community mitigation activities to help slow the spread of respiratory virus infections including the novel coronavirus SARS-C0V-2, the cause of the disease COVID-19.
These approaches are used to minimize morbidity and mortality of COVID-19 as well as to minimize the social and economic impacts of COVID-19. Individuals, communities, businesses, and healthcare organizations are all part of a community mitigation strategy.
The focus is on protecting the health care system with expected rise in cases by slowing the spread within the community and focused on protecting the vulnerable members of the community.
