Coronavirus FAQs

Yes. We understand this is a time of stress and uncertainty for many in our communities. Novant Health UVA Health System has been hard-at-work building on our preparedness plans and our infectious disease experts are closely monitoring this ever-evolving situation. The best thing you can do right now is stay informed with accurate information, stay calm and do what you can to reduce your chances of catching any respiratory viruses. This includes washing your hands and, if you have respiratory symptoms, calling your healthcare provider before arriving for an appointment to limit the spread of illness. For severe symptoms or a medical emergency, call 911.

Currently, no vaccine is available to prevent COVID-19 infection. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid exposure to this virus. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends everyday preventive actions to help limit the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • 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.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

The outbreak of a new coronavirus in late 2019 in Wuhan City, Hubei province, China, can now be found around the world, including the United States. The virus is now called SARSCoV-2 and the disease that it causes is called COVID-19.
