2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19): What you should know
Updated May 21, 2020
At UC Davis Health, the safety of our patients, visitors, employees and the community is our top priority at all times. We are rigorously monitoring the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, which was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization.
Taking care of individuals with complex illnesses such as an infectious disease, like novel coronavirus (COVID-19), is nothing new for our care teams – we do it every day. Our teams are trained and equipped to treat patients with symptoms of novel coronavirus and any others with a potential contagious disease.
UC Davis infectious disease teams are in constant communication with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), California Department of Public Health, and Sacramento County Public Health about managing potential cases. We are taking all the steps necessary to ensure the safety of everyone within our medical center and other UC Davis Health clinics and facilities.
