COVID-19 (how it’s spread)

You can become infected by coming into close contact (about 6 feet or two arm lengths) with a person who has COVID-19. The COVID-19 virus is primarily spread from person to person from respiratory droplets when an infected person talks, coughs, or sneezes. Respiratory droplets are tiny drops of liquid that travel through the air when someone talks, coughs or sneezes. This is why it's important to wear a mask when in public spaces. You may also be able to get it by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it, and then by touching your mouth, nose, or eyes. Click on the website link below to learn more.
