How COVID-19 Spreads

As we discuss mitigation measures, it is important for our community to know how COVID-19 is spread and controlled. COVID-19 is mostly spread by respiratory droplets released when people talk, sing, laugh, cough, or sneeze. There is also evidence that the virus spreads from contaminated surfaces to hands and then to the nose, mouth, or eyes, causing infection.
