nCOVID-19 (Novel Coronovirus) Information for Granville and Vance County (Update as of 3/10/2020)

The health and safety of our community is our number one priority. While there are no confirmed cases of the virus that causes novel Coronavirus disease 2019 (nCOVID-19) in Granville or Vance County, Granville-Vance Public Health (GVPH) wants to make sure that our community has accurate information to help prevent and prepare for nCOVID-19.

What is my risk?
At this time there are no known cases in Granville or Vance County and one confirmed case in North Carolina; the risk to most of our residents is low.

Coronaviruses are thought to spread mainly from person-to-person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The greatest risk is for people who have recently traveled to China or been exposed to someone with nCOVID-19.

The best things individuals can do to protect themselves from Coronavirus are the same things that will protect them from the flu:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water
  • Stay away from people who are sick

If you traveled to China or another area with an active outbreak in the last 14 days and feel sick with fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, you should:

  • Seek medical care right away. Before you go to visit your medical provider, call ahead and tell them about your recent travel and your symptoms.
  • Avoid contact with others.
  • Avoid non-essential travel while sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
