Of the 20 known cases that have reached a conclusion and are no longer active, there have been two deaths and 18 have recovered.

The health department is in the process of interviewing close contacts, as well as recommending each person monitor for symptoms and quarantine themselves, based on risk exposure.

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then immediately throw the tissue in the trash.  Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
