How is COVID-19 Spread?

We still need to learn more and information is changing every day.  However, like influenza, human coronaviruses usually spread from a person who has the virus to others through:

  • Small droplets from the nose or mouth that are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs, sneezes, or exhales.
  • Possibly by touching surfaces or objects that have the virus on them.
