Know How it Spreads

Illustration: woman sneezing on manThe 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).
    • Respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
  • These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby, be inhaled into the lungs, or land on surfaces that are then touched.
Protect Yourself & Others
  • Stay home to prevent the spread and to lessen your chances of infection
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Wash and clean hands often
  • Clean and disinfect frequently
