How is COVID-19 transmitted?
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person through the respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. Spread of COVID-19 is more likely to occur when these infected droplets land in the mouths or noses of people who are in close contact with one another or possibly inhaled into the lungs. Close contact is within about six feet.

What can be done to prevent the spread of COVID-19?
There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus.

Steps you can take to protect yourself include:

  • Clean your hands frequently, either for at least 20 seconds with soap and water, or using hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Refrain from shaking hands
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze, throw used tissues in the trash immediately, and clean wash your hands.
  • Avoid prolonged close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home if you are sick and practice social distancing if COVID-19 is spreading in your community.
  • Wear a facemask or cloth covering.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
