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.
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.
