COVID-19 can be spread by people who are and are not showing symptoms.
According the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), COVID-19 is spread predominately by respiratory droplets released when people talk, cough, or sneeze. Find more information on how COVID-19 spreads on the CDC’s website.
Wearing a face covering, maintaining a 6-foot distance from others, avoiding large crowds, and getting vaccinated for COVID-19 are a couple ways you can help prevent the spread of this disease. Find more recommendations on our COVID-19 Guidance page.
