CDC

CDC updates its COVID-19 guidance to include information about potential for airborne spread. Based on current science, CDC believes people are still most likely to become infected with COVID-19 the longer and closer they are to a person with COVID-19.

A few published reports show limited, uncommon circumstances where people with COVID-19 infected others who were more than 6 feet away or shortly after the COVID-19-positive person left an area. In these instances, transmission occurred in poorly ventilated and enclosed spaces that often involved activities that caused heavier breathing, like singing or exercise. Such environments and activities may contribute to the buildup of virus-carrying particles.

CDC’s recommendations remain the same: People can protect themselves from COVID-19 by staying at least 6 feet away from others, wearing a mask that covers their nose & mouth, washing hands frequently, cleaning touched surfaces often, avoid crowded indoor spaces and ensure indoor spaces are properly ventilated, and staying home when sick.
