Public health officials are closely monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.

COVID-19 cases and deaths have been reported in all 50 states, and the situation is constantly changing. The virus that causes COVID-19 is spreading very easily and sustainably between people. People in places like Oklahoma where ongoing community spread of the virus that causes COVID-19 has been reported are at elevated risk of exposure, with increase in risk dependent on the location.  The CDC recommends that travelers avoid all nonessential international travel. Additionally, they issued an alert advising older adults and those with chronic medical conditions to consider postponing nonessential travel. The CDC also recommends all travelers, particularly those with underlying health issues, defer all cruise ship travel worldwide.
