COVID-19 is primarily spread through respiratory droplets. To become infected, you must be within six feet of someone who is contagious and come into contact with these droplets. It is possible to contract COVID-19 by touching surfaces or objects that has the virus on it and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes. Symptoms of COVID-19 appear within two to 14 days after exposure and include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Click here for more information provided by the CDC.
The CDC believes that symptoms of COVID-19 may appear in as few as two days, or as long as 14 days after exposure. To be cautious, many governments are requiring an isolation period of 14 days after returning from endemic areas.
