The RI Department of Health (RIDOH) and national public health officials continue to respond to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Although there have not been any cases of COVID-19 confirmed in Rhode Island, they want to make sure that our communities and our healthcare system are prepared. Being informed is an important part of being prepared. For that reason, please review RIDOH's February 21 briefing message regarding coronavirus disease. They intend to send regular updates moving forward.
