Homeisinformation 02

According to the CDC, the virus identified on Feb. 11, 2020, by the World Health Organization, is a coronavirus disease 2019 or COVID-19. This is not the same as a coronavirus that normally circulates among humans.

There are many types of human coronavirus, the strain the world is seeing today has not previously been seen in humans.

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is thought to be spread mainly from person-to-person. This can be between people who are in close contact with one another and through respiratory droplets such as coughs and sneezes.

The virus is thought to be most contagious when the person afflicted happen to be most symptomatic, however there is information that indicates the virus can be spread before symptoms develop.

COVID-19 can live on surfaces outside of the human body for an extended amount of time.

You can assist in efforts to stop the spread through:

  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care
  • Wash your hands often

Of those confirmed cases of Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), symptoms have ranged from mild to severe.

Most symptoms develop within 2-14 days after exposure and the most common symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of Breath

Symptoms Mobile

Patients with the following emergency warning signs are urged to seek medical help:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • New confusion or inability to arouse
  • Bluish lips or face

COVID-19 has been a challenge for medical professionals and patients to identify if they have the virus or if their symptoms are from a common cold.

Americans who are eagerly waiting for checks from the coronavirus stimulus package signed by President Donald Trump on March 27 won’t have to wait much longer.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced over the Easter weekend that the first coronavirus stimulus checks were being deposited into some taxpayers banks accounts.

Who’s getting a check first?

The people who will receive the first checks are those who filed their taxes in 2018 or 2019 and received refunds through direct deposit.

Those who didn’t file their taxes or are very low income will have to wait longer for their money. Paper checks should start going out in early May.

Elise Gould, a senior economist with the Economic Policy Institute said that others might not receive their money until mid-summer.

“There’s going to have to be a way to collect their information, and that process could take a couple months,” Gould said.

If the IRS doesn’t have your current bank information for direct deposit, the agency is putting together a web portal that users can use to check the status on their stimulus checks. This tool should be launched by Friday, April 17.

If you would like to view the stimulus check tracker info, you can go here.

The IRS launched the page to allow those who didn’t file their taxes to provide the federal government with payment information.

How much will I get?

Some people are wondering just how much they’ll receive from the federal government after the COVID-19 pandemic.

People who make $75,000 or less will receive $1,200. That amount is changed for people who make $99,000 or more.

U.S. residents will receive the Economic Impact Payment of $1,200 for individual or head of household filers while those filing jointly as married will receive $2,400 as long as they aren’t dependent on another taxpayers. You must also have a work eligible Social Security number with adjusted gross incomes up to:

  • $75,000 for individuals
  • $112,500 for head of household filers
  • $150,000 for married couples filing joint returns

Taxpayers will receive a reduced payment if their Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) is between:

  • $75,000 and $99,000 if their filing status was single or married filing separately
  • 112,500 and $136,500 for head of household
  • $150,000 and $198,000 if their filing status was married filing jointly

The amount of the stimulus check will depend on the taxpayers specific AGI.

You will also receive a stimulus check if you:

  • Are an eligible retiree
  • Receive Social Security
  • Receive Railroad Retirement
  • Receive disability or veteran’s benefits
  • Are a taxpayers that doesn’t make enough money to file a tax return
  • Have no income
  • Receive income from certain benefit programs like Supplemental Security Income benefits

You will not receive the stimulus check if your adjusted gross income is greater than:

  • $99,000 if your filing status was single or married filing separately
  • $136,500 for head of household
  • $198,000 if your filing status was married filing jointly

You will not be eligible to receive the money if you:

  • Do not have a valid Social Security number
  • You are a nonresident alien
  • You filed Form 1040-NR or Form 1040NR-EZ, Form 1040-PR or Form 1040-SS for 2019

You also don’t need to take any additional action to receive the aid if you:

  • Filed your tax return for 2018 or 2019
  • Receive Social Security or Railroad Retirement benefits
  • Receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

Social Security and Railroad retirees as well as SSDI who have qualifying children will also receive an additional $500 per qualifying child.

The IRS also has plans to mail a letter concerning the economic impact payment to the taxpayers last known address within about 15 days that the payment is sent. The IRS is also urging taxpayers to be on the lookout for scamp artists when they receive their impact payments.

It’s important to note that the IRS will NOT

  • Call you
  • text you
  • email you or
  • contact you on social media asking for personal or bank account information especially related to the economic impact payments.

Individuals will receive the money by direct deposit or by paper check.
