The Orange County Health Care Agency has confirmed one case of the novel (new) coronavirus
(2019-nCoV) in Orange County. There is no evidence of person-to-person transmission in Orange
County and the current risk of infection to the public is low.

We understand that there may be concern to our community and the Huntington Beach Fire
Department is actively engaging with the Orange County Health Care Agency to stay abreast of current updates and potential impacts within our city.

The following will help you and your family to prevent illness inside your home or business.

  • Wash hands routinely and after casual contact.
  • Stay home from work or school for at least 24 hours following any symptoms of illness.
  • Consult with your family’s primary care physician.

The Orange County Health Care Agency has released the following important points:

  • CDC guidance indicates that people who have casual contact with a case (in the same grocery store or movie theater) are at minimal risk of developing infection.
  • If you have not been to China, or been in close contact with someone who has been to China and is sick, your risk is very low.
  • If you have been to China and feel sick with fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, within 14 days after you left China, you should:
    • Seek medical care right away. Before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room, call ahead and tell them about your recent travel and your symptoms
    • Avoid contact with others.
    • Not travel while sick.
    • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.


The Huntington Beach Fire Department will continue to update our community as information becomes available.
