What is coronavirus?

While coronaviruses have been around for a long time, this strain (COVID-19) is not the same as the others that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illnesses, like the common cold. There is no vaccine or specific treatment yet for COVID-19.

As a special service to individuals who have had a Catapult checkup, you are invited to consult with a Catapult Nurse Practitioner.
