Am I at risk?

The risk to individuals is dependent on exposure. Under current circumstances, certain people will have an increased risk of getting the infection. For example:

  • People who live in areas where widespread community transmission is occurring.
  • People who had direct close contact with someone who was confirmed to have COVID-19.

Certain people are at higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19, including:

  • Older people (over age 60), especially those over 80.
  • People who have chronic medical conditions like heart, lung, or kidney disease or diabetes.
  • Older people with chronic medical conditions are at the highest risk.

People at higher risk should stay at home and pay extra attention to preventive measures. Reach out to others if you need something. Read more in this fact sheet for people at higher risk.
