Eight out of 10 COVID-19 deaths reported in the United States have been adults ages 65 years and older.
As you get older, your risk of being hospitalized with COVID-19 increases. It’s important for older adults and people with underlying medical conditions to take precautions to reduce their risk of getting COVID-19. The same goes for people who live or visit with those individuals.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provided guidance
to help older adults reduce their risk of getting COVID-19 and navigate going out in public.
