Media is raising concerns in reference to the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout the United States.  Greenville is working diligently with  the Texas of State Health Services (DSHS), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 


What is a novel Coronavirus? 

A novel coronavirus is a new coronavirus that has not been previously identified. The virus causing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is not the same as the coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold. A diagnosis with coronavirus 229E, NL63, OC43, or HKU1 is not the same as a COVID-19 diagnosis. Patients with COVID-19 will be evaluated and cared for differently than patients with common coronavirus diagnosis.

All further information should be directed by way of the links provided.  DSHS is the Texas level information, with the CDC being Nationwide.
