Older Adults and the Coronavirus

Older adults, 65 years and older, are at higher risk for severe illness. COVID-19 is a new disease and we are learning more about it every day.

What you can do:

  • Stay home.

  • Wash your hands often.

  • Avoid close contact (6 feet, which is about two arm lengths) with people who are sick.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched services.

  • Avoid all cruise travel and non-essential air travel.

  • Call your healthcare professional if you have concerns about COVID-19 and your underlying condition or if you are sick.
