Tracking coronavirus: no Anaheim cases

Coronavirus

ANAHEIM, Calif. (Feb. 25, 2020) — Anaheim continues to follow the global coronavirus outbreak with no cases reported in our city.

We are in contact with the Orange County Health Care Agency, tracking a federal proposal to bring patients to Costa Mesa and following updates from the federal Centers for Disease Control.

As of late February, there has been only one known case of coronavirus in Orange County, in the city of Irvine. The patient has recovered.

On Tuesday, a CDC official reaffirmed that the immediate public risk of coronavirus remains low but communities could see new or additional cases.

Beyond general precautions, there are no specific concerns for Anaheim.

The risk of catching coronavirus in public places is minimal, according to the CDC.

If you have not been to China, South Korea, Japan, Italy or Iran recently, the risk of infection remains low.

Major U.S. international airports, including Los Angeles International Airport, are screening passengers arriving from outbreak areas.

As an international visitor city, it’s a good precaution to follow basic preventive tips here in Anaheim.

The basic precautions are similar to avoiding the flu or the common cold.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • If soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol
  • Wash or sanitize your hands before eating, after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing
  • Don’t touch your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Stay home if you’re sick

If you are traveling to Anaheim or a resident traveling, you should also follow some basic precautionary guidelines.

  • If you have any health concerns check with your doctor before traveling
  • Don’t travel with a fever or respiratory sickness
  • Wash and sanitize your hands often
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
