Coronavirus Disease 2019

There is an ongoing outbreak of respiratory illness that originated in Wuhan, China caused by a new type of coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). There are a number of cases globally including the United States. On February 26th, the CDC confirmed a possible instance of community spread in the United States.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses, some causing respiratory illness in people. Signs and symptoms, similar to the common cold or the flu, include a runny nose, cough, sore throat, fever, and general feeling of being unwell.

For the most up-to-date information on the outbreak, please visit the CDC's COVID-19 website.

If you traveled to China or other areas currently affected by COVID-19 and feel sick with fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, you should:

  • Avoid contact with others.
  • Do not 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 or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, immediately after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.
  • If you need to seek medical care, before going to your doctor’s office, call ahead and tell them about your recent travel and your symptoms.
  • Discuss travel to China with your healthcare provider. Older adults and travelers with chronic medical conditions may be at risk for more severe disease.

COVID-19 Hotline

A COVID-19 hotline has been set up to answer any questions from the public and healthcare providers about testing, symptoms, and any other questions you have about the virus. Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. This is a rapidly evolving situation, and the Pima County Health Department (PCHD) is closely monitoring any new developments.

Call (520) 626-6016 (local) or 1-844-542-8201 (state) to reach a health care professional.

Local Information and Response

There has been a single presumptive positive case of COVID-19 in a returning traveler residing in unincorporated Pima County. Get up-to-date information by following us on social media on Facebook, @pimacountyhealthdepartment and Twitter, @pchd.

PCHD continues to work closely with state and federal health officials to prepare for COVID-19 in our community and is in close contact with local health systems and health care providers to review cases and provide guidance.

  • The current risk for exposure to COVID-19 in Pima County remains low.
  • The Health Department is working closely with healthcare, government, and many other public health partners to prepare for COVID-19 in our community.
  • There is a chance that people in Pima County will get flu, a common cold, or stomach bug, as we know these are circulating in our community. The best protections against COVID-19 are the same actions you should take to prevent these other illnesses: wash your hands frequently, get a flu shot, avoid people who are currently sick, and stay home when sick.
