As worries over the ever-expanding COVID-19 virus grow, Beaumont staff is prepared to keep you informed.

Coronavirus/COVID-19 is the novel coronavirus with mild illness similar to the common cold and is known to spread mainly from person-to-person contact through sneezing and coughing. 

Symptoms include cough, shortness of breath and fever. 

To help inform its patients, families, staff, and communities, Beaumont has published a web page for updated information about coronavirus/COVID-19. The page contains FAQs, general symptom and prevention information and additional local and national resources.
