There is currently no vaccine to prevent 2019-nCoV infection. The CDC recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, such as novel coronavirus. We are still very much at risk to spread of COVID-19. It’s critical we keep each other safe so we don’t lose the progress made in recent weeks.
