How does COVID-19 spread?

COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person. When a person with COVID-19 coughs or sneezes, they produce respiratory droplets that may land in the mouths and noses of people nearby. These respiratory droplets may also land on objects and surfaces. When another person touches the object or surface and then touches their mouth, nose, or eyes, they may be infected with the virus.

Learn more about COVID-19 transmission on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

These symptoms may appear 2 to 4 days after exposure:

  • Fever

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath
