Pandemic: The worldwide spread of a disease that affects large numbers of people. Note that upgrading from an “epidemic” to a “pandemic” doesn’t necessarily mean the disease is more dangerous, just that it is no longer confined to one region. 

Social Distancing: Measures taken to remain out of public spaces, avoid mass gatherings and maintain distance (approximately 6 feet) from others when possible.

Quarantine: Separation from others of a person reasonably believed to have been exposed to a communicable disease, but who is not yet exhibiting symptoms.

Isolation: Separation from others of a person reasonably believed to have been infected with a communicable disease.

Incubation Period: The time it takes for symptoms to appear in an infected person.

Community Transmission: When a virus spreads from person to person outside healthcare settings, meaning people who do not believe they are infected could be passing on the virus to others.

Containment: Sets of actions (like isolation and quarantine) that public health officials use to stop the spread of a disease.

Mitigation: Sets of actions (like social distancing) that persons and communities can take to slow the spread of respiratory virus infections.
