COVID-19 is a highly contagious viral infection that causes a mild to severe respiratory illness. The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when people are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). For more information visit www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html
