These are the 4 most common symptoms that people with COVID-19 are experiencing. If you have any one of these, we strongly suggest you see a medical professional get tested immediately.
HOW COVID-19 SPREAD
Coughs from Infected Person
There have been reported outbreaks of COVID-19 in some closed settings, such as restaurants, nightclubs, places of worship or places of work where people may be coughing, shouting, talking, or singing. In these outbreaks, aerosol transmission, particularly in these indoor locations where there are crowded and inadequately ventilated spaces where infected persons spend long periods of time with others, cannot be ruled out
Close Contact with Infected Person
• Being within approximately 6 feet of a person with coronavirus for a prolonged period. For example, sitting within 6 feet of the patient in a healthcare waiting area.
• Having direct contact with bodily fluids of someone infected. For example, being coughed on or touching used tissues with a bare hand.
Touching Contaminated Objects
People with the virus in their noses and throats may leave infected droplets on objects and surfaces (called fomites) when they sneeze, cough on, or touch surfaces, such as tables, doorknobs and handrails. Other people may become infected by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, noses or mouths before cleaning their hands.
