About Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19):
How it Spreads
COVID-19 spreads from person to person, mainly through coughs and sneezes of infected people or between people who are in close contact.
How the Village of Wolverine Lake is Responding
We activated our Emergency Operations Center which is in accordance with the Oakland County Health Department in order to coordinate response and prepare for a potential outbreak. Our Emergency Operations staff have been and continue to work closely with Oakland County Health Department and Oakland County Homeland Security, the state, and federal officials to protect our community as we respond to this developing situation.
This is a new disease, and scientists are learning more about it daily. Recommendations may change rapidly.
How to Protect Yourself and Others:
The most important thing you can do is to practice everyday healthy behaviors that prevent the spread of germs.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Don't touch your face with unwashed hands.
- Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water aren't available. Look for one with at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick.
- Practice social distancing
These actions don't just protect you. They help keep our whole community safe, especially our most vulnerable residents, by slowing the spread of the disease.

Masks Are Recommended
In light of this new evidence, CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
It is critical to emphasize that maintaining 6-feet social distancing remains important to slowing the spread of the virus. CDC is additionally advising the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure. The cloth face coverings recommended are NOT surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that MUST continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.
Check out this video on "How to Make Your own Face Covering" by Dr. Jerome Adams, US Surgeon General.
Several countries are experiencing rapid community spread of COVID-19. The CDC recommends avoiding all nonessential travel to these countries. If you have trips planned, check the latest CDC travel guidelines.
What to Do If You're Sick:
When you're sick, stay home! Don't spread infections to others. When you're sick with any respiratory illness:
- Stay home. Don't go to school or work.
- Minimize contact with others in your household.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you don't have a tissue, cough into your elbow rather than your hand.
- Wash or sanitize hands immediately after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, like doorknobs, phones, and faucets.
- shortness of breath
- been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19, or
- recently traveled from an area with ongoing community spread

CDC Fact Sheet (English)
Viruses Don’t Discriminate and Neither Should We
Public health emergencies, such as the outbreak of coronavirus disease, are stressful times for people and communities. Fear and anxiety about a disease can lead to social stigma toward people, places, or things. You can reduce stigma if you:
- Rely on and share trusted sources of information
- Speak up if you hear, see or read misinformation
- Show support for impacted individuals and communities
