Coronavirus disease... 2019 (COVID-19) is a new virus that had not been previously
identified. The virus causing COVID-19 is not the same as the viruses that commonly
circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold.
The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person,
mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or
COVID-19 is a new disease and there is limited information regarding risk factors for this
severe disease. Based on currently available and peer-reviewed information and clinical
expertise from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), people of any age who have
serious underlying medical conditions as well as older adults might be at higher risk for
severe illness from COVID-19. Children have similar symptoms to adults and generally
have mild illness.
People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild
symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus.
People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
▪ Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
▪ Muscle pain
▪ Sore throat
▪ New loss of taste or smell
Oregon Physical Distancing Policy
The "Intel Oregon Physical Distancing Policy" (“Policy”) summarizes measures

Oregon Health Authority requirements implemented in the "Intel Oregon Physical Distancing Policy",
as well as additional procedures, guidelines, job guides and related documentation.
You are required to review and understand the current "Intel Oregon Physical Distancing

their employer or Intel sponsor. Guests will be provided a copy for review at Intel lobbies.
Oregon Physical Distancing Guidelines
Physical distancing is an important measure encouraged by the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Simply put, this is

“Physical” and “social” are equivalent in meaning, relative to distancing guidelines and
