FAQs for Individuals
How does the COVID-19 virus spread?
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person:
Between people who are in close contact with one another (within ~6 feet).
Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby, or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
How can I protect myself from catching and spreading the virus?
The CDC recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
Get vaccinated. Click here to find a vaccine near you.
Follow the CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
Stay home when you are sick, and get tested if you believe you have COVID-19.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before and after eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
