Virus Spread

How Covid-19 Spread

Human Contact

People who are physically near (within 6 feet) a person with COVID-19 or have direct contact with that person are at greatest risk of infection.

Air Transmission

Some infections can be spread by exposure to virus in small droplets and particles that can linger in the air for minutes to hours. These viruses may be able to infect people who are further than 6 feet away from the person who is infected or after that person has left the space.

Contaminated Objects

Respiratory droplets can also land on surfaces and objects. It is possible that a person could get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes.
