    • Description:
      Update: February 14, 2020 (This guidance provides clarification regarding evaluation for home isolation and a new section with information regarding preventative steps for household members, intimate partners, and caregivers in a nonhealthcare setting of a person with symptomatic, laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 infection) This interim guidance is based on what is currently known about the epidemiology of COVID-19 and the transmission of other viral respiratory infections. CDC will update this interim guidance as needed and as additional information becomes available. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses, some causing illness in people and others that circulate among animals, including camels, cats, and bats. Rarely, animal coronaviruses can infect people exposed to infected animals, and then spread among people, as has been seen with MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV, and likely now with COVID-19. This interim guidance may help prevent this virus from spreading among people in their homes and in other residential communities.
