CDC Guidelines pertaining to COVID-19

  • The CDC updated the How COVID-19 Spreads website on October 5, 2020
    • “COVID-19 most commonly spreads during close contact”
      • “Infections occur mainly through exposure to respiratory droplets when a person is in close contact with someone who has COVID-19.”
      • “As the respiratory droplets travel further from the person with COVID-19, the concentration of these droplets decreases. Larger droplets fall out of the air due to gravity. Smaller droplets and particles spread apart in the air.”
  • “COVID-19 can sometimes be spread by airborne transmission’
    • “There is evidence that under certain conditions, people with COVID-19 seem to have infected others who were more than 6 feet away. These transmissions occurred within enclosed spaces that had inadequate ventilation. Sometimes the infected person was breathing heavily, for example while singing or exercising.”
  • “COVID-19 spreads less commonly through contact with contaminated surfaces”
    • “Spread from touching surfaces is not thought to be a common way that COVID-19 spreads”
