Welcome to the Fountain of Hope's COVID-19 update page, where we provide the latest information and updates related to the ongoing pandemic.

Stay Informed, Stay Safe
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected people worldwide, and it is crucial to stay informed about the latest developments to ensure your safety and the safety of your loved ones. At Fountain of Hope, we are committed to providing accurate and up-to-date information from reliable sources.
What is COVID-19?
COVID-19, also known as the novel coronavirus, is a highly contagious respiratory illness caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It was first identified in Wuhan, China in late 2019 and has since spread globally. The virus primarily spreads through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.
Common symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, fatigue, body aches, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, and shortness of breath. While most infected individuals experience mild to moderate symptoms, the virus can cause severe illness, especially in older adults and those with underlying health conditions.
Preventing the Spread
Preventing the spread of COVID-19 requires collective effort and adherence to recommended guidelines. Here are some key measures to follow:
- Wear a mask: Wearing a mask in public places helps reduce the transmission of respiratory droplets.
- Maintain physical distance: Keep at least 6 feet of distance from others, especially in crowded areas.
- Practice hand hygiene: Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content.
- Follow respiratory etiquette: Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow when coughing or sneezing.
- Stay home if unwell: If you experience symptoms or have been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, stay home and seek medical advice.
- Get vaccinated: Stay updated on vaccination availability and eligibility in your area and get vaccinated to protect yourself and others.
