Oregon officials shut down schools to stop the spread of COVID-19, a respiratory virus commonly called coronovirus.

State health officials urge, “good hand hygiene, covering coughs and staying home if you are sick”. According to the CDC, symptoms can include fever, a cough, and shortness of breath. These symptoms emerge two to 14 days after exposure.

Diagnosis is difficult because the symptoms overlap with other common ailments, health officials say. The cough is usually a dry cough, and a runny nose and sneezing aren’t commonly associated with COVID-19.

Over 400 Oregon doctors are asking State officials for more action and equipment in response to the outbreak. And Gov. Kate Brown is also asking the federal government for more supplies and testing capacity.

If you’re going out, take care, and it’s probably best to double-check if an event is even being held.
