COVID-19 is a new respiratory virus with no vaccine or treatment. Most people will recover on their own, but some people can develop pneumonia and require medical care or hospitalization.
COVID-19 is not connected to race, ethnicity or nationality. Misinformation can spread faster than diseases. Do your part to prevent this. Seek—and share—accurate information.

You should take these steps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:
There is currently no evidence that pets spread COVID-19 or are getting sick with COVID-19. Based on the limited information available to date, the risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to people is considered to be low. A small number of pets have been reported to be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, mostly after contact with people with COVID-19.
Pets have other types of coronaviruses that can make them sick, like canine and feline coronaviruses. These other coronaviruses cannot infect people and are not related to the current COVID-19 outbreak.
However, since animals can spread other diseases to people, it’s always a good idea to practice healthy habits around pets and other animals, such as washing your hands and maintaining good hygiene.
The Veterans Service Center and VFW Service Office Post 1035 are both closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

CCHHS has created a temporary way for indigent veterans to submit applications for assistance. At this time, veterans may submit an application by phone only. Beginning Wednesday, March 25, veterans can call 360-577-3198, Tuesday through Friday, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Information will also be published on the Veteran’s Relief webpage and on the CCHHS Facebook page.
