How does COVID-19 spread?

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person:

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet)
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks
  • These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs
  • Some people without symptoms may be able to spread the virus
