California Department of Health (CDPH) Overview
 
The state of California is responding to the spread of a respiratory illness caused by a novel coronavirus first identified in mainland China. Cases of COVID-19 are also being reported internationally and in the United States. The California Department of Public Health is actively working with the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local governments, health facilities, and health care providers across to prepare and protect Californians from COVID-19.
 
Orange County Health Care Agency (OCHCA) Overview

According to the Orange County Health Care Agency, the risk of infection to public in Orange County is believed to be low. Older adults (ages 60 and higher) as well as people who have serious, chronic medical conditions are at higher risk for contracting COVID-19. These individuals should avoid crowds as much as possible, in addition to cruise travel and non-essential air travel. All residents should practice good health hygiene which includes the prevention measures listed below.
 
Prevention
 
The California Department of Public Health recommends practicing common sense public health measures to help combat the spread of the coronavirus. These measures include:
 
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Stay home when you are sick. Students with flu-like symptoms should be kept home from school or daycare for at least 24 hours after their fever resolves without the use of fever-reducing medications, such as Tylenol or Advil.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
