One of the most important messages for us to remember is that someone's nationality alone is not a risk factor for coronavirus. "Someone's risk for 2019 novel coronavirus is closely tied to their recent travel history, and the travel histories of their immediate contacts—specifically, travel to mainland China or close contact with a person confirmed to have 2019 novel coronavirus." There are steps we can take to support our families’ mental and physical health during an infectious disease outbreak.
