they say covid-19 is a public health emergency, but what is each person supposed to do? it's not like a tornado alert where you can see the storm.

COVID-19: Don't panic. Watch for advice from your local public health department. Use the standard common sense precautions: cover coughs, wash hand frequently (or use hand sanitizer when washing isn't convenient), avoid direct conact with other persons (for example, elbow bump instead of handshake), avoid crowds.
