The 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV or COVID-19) is a new virus that causes respiratory illness in people and can spread from person-to-person. This virus was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China. It has spread to several other countries.
Monterey County Health Officials continue to work closely with local hospitals, medical providers, emergency medical service agencies, federal and state officials, and other community partners to detect possible cases of COVID-19, facilitate testing, reduce the chances of local transmission of the virus, and safeguard the health of our communities.
