Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses common throughout the world, some causing illness in people and others among animals. COVID-19 is a new coronavirus that can cause mild to severe illness.

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus was first identified during an outbreak in China and has since spread to many other countries, including the United States. Multiple variants of the virus that causes COVID-19 have been documented in the United States and globally during this pandemic.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are actively responding to both national and global outbreaks. The Florida Department of Health is carefully monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 in Florida and the United States.
