COVID-19 spreads between people who are within 6 feet of each other through respiratory droplets produced when a person with the infection coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets land in the mouth or nose of a person who is nearby or are possibly inhaled into our lungs. By taking these six simple ways to prevent the spread and protect each other, we can help prevent others from getting COVID-19.
