Here is a list of resources to help you get through the current Coronavirus outbreak:
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF CORONAVIRUS?
According to the CDC, reported illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death for confirmed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases.
These symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure (based on the incubation period of MERS-CoV viruses).
- Shortness of breath
If you are concerned you may have COVID-19, contact a healthcare provider IMMEDIATELY.
These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have coronavirus, though. Instead, use THIS OFFICIAL CDC SYMPTOM CHECKER to get a better understanding of your symptoms.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU HAVE OR THINK YOU MAY HAVE CORONAVIRUS?
According to the CDC, the first steps are to immediately contact your healthcare provider and take steps to stop the disease from spreading in your own home.
If you need to go in for care, it is recommended that you call ahead of time to avoid getting other sick.
Other steps you can take to stop the spread of COVID-19 include:
- Avoid using public transportation including busses, taxis, and ride-sharing options like Uber and Lyft
- Stay away from others in your community and your house. If possible, have a “sick room” to isolate yourself into and a separate bathroom that uninfected people will not use.
- Wear a face mask over your nose and mouth to stop the disease from spreading to others. If you don’t have one, don’t worry. The CDC has THESE STEPS TO MAKE AT-HOME FACE MASKS. The government is currently advising all people to wear these masks when they go outside to avoid spreading COVID-19
- Cover your sneezes and coughs with a tissue. Immediately dispose of that tissue. Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
- Keep your hands clean.
- Wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water. If these are not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Don’t touch your face with unwashed hands
- Do not share ANY household items including dishes, glasses, towels, bedding, pillows, etc. Also clean after every use.
- Clean all “high-touch” surfaces in your “sick room” daily. High-touch surfaces include phones, remote controls, counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, keyboards, tablets, and bedside tables.
- Monitor your symptoms including your fever and breathing. If they get worse, seek medical attention immediately but call first. Your doctor or emergency room will help you handle the situation.
- If you are an older adult or someone with a pre-existing medical condition, please see the CDC’s extended information AVAILABLE HERE.

HOW TO CLAIM YOUR INDIVIDUAL $1200 ECONOMIC STIMULUS CHECK
According to the IRS website, the distribution of economic impact payments will begin in the next three weeks and will be distributed automatically, with no action required for most people. Social Security beneficiaries who are not typically required to file tax returns will not need to file to receive a payment. Instead, payments will be automatically deposited into their bank accounts. However, some people who typically do not file returns will need to submit a simple tax return to receive the economic impact payment. When more specific details become available, we will update this page.
You can find additional information on this here.
TAX FILING DATE HAS CHANGED
As a result of the 2019 Coronavirus outbreak, the deadlines to FILE and PAY federal income taxes are extended to July 15, 2020. If this is pushed back further at a later point, that information will be available here.
