Frequently Asked Questions about COVID-19

COVID-19 is a novel virus that gives you a fever, makes you cough, and impacts your breathing. “Novel” means that this particular virus has never been seen before in human populations.

There are some key differences between 流感 and COVID-19. COVID-19 seems to spread more easily than 流感 and causes more serious illnesses in some people. It can also take longer before people show symptoms and people can be contagious for longer. Another important difference is there is a vaccine to protect against 流感. There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19.

COVID-19 Basic Needs Impact Survey

COVID-19 Basic Needs Impact Survey: Taking the pulse of the pandemic

COVID-19’s rapid arrival in Minnesota in March 2020 created many changes in our community. 在此期间, we created a phone-based survey to better understand the needs of our primary care patients, especially those at highest risk of poor outcomes, and to inform how we care for our community during COVID-19.

5月11日至6月12日, 2020, nearly 400 adult primary care patients reflected on their experiences with the arrival of COVID-19 and resulting social and economic impacts.
