How COVID-19 Spreads
Updated Sept. 21, 2020

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Syndicate

A draft version of proposed changes to these recommendations was posted in error to the agency’s official website. CDC is currently updating its recommendations regarding airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). Once this process has been completed, the update language will be posted.

COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly through close contact from person-to-person. Some people without symptoms may be able to spread the virus. We are still learning about how the virus spreads and the severity of illness it causes.
Person-to-person spread

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
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.
COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.

The virus spreads easily between people

How easily a virus spreads from person-to-person can vary. Some viruses are highly contagious, like measles, while other viruses do not spread as easily. Another factor is whether the spread is sustained, which means it goes from person-to-person without stopping.

The virus that causes COVID-19 is spreading very easily and sustainably between people. Information from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic suggests that this virus is spreading more efficiently than influenza, but not as efficiently as measles, which is highly contagious. In general, the more closely a person interacts with others and the longer that interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread.
The virus may be spread in other ways

It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes. This is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads, but we are still learning more about how this virus spreads.
Spread between animals and people

At this time, the risk of COVID-19 spreading from animals to people is considered to be low. Learn about COVID-19 and pets and other animals.
It appears that the virus that causes COVID-19 can spread from people to animals in some situations. CDC is aware of a small number of pets worldwide, including cats and dogs, reported to be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, mostly after close contact with people with COVID-19. Learn what you should do if you have pets.

Protect yourself and others

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. You can take steps to slow the spread.

Maintain good social distance (about 6 feet). This is very important in preventing the spread of COVID-19.
Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others.

Learn more about what you can do to protect yourself and others.

And the same thing I have known now for lets say hmmmmmmm close to 60 frikkin years. And of course is this the week that eggs are bad for you and coffee and wine will let you live to 200? And I wonder why I was so confused during physics and electrical engineering classes in college. Science is fact..........until it is proven otherwise........Think about that for a tad

Time to start opening business up and especially schools. Kids need in class learning and social interaction. This last 6 months has set back the students learning big time.

Enough is enough. WAY to many people have lost their jobs, businesses and their way of life. The more people that stand up against the local government to end all this BS, the quicker it will go away. Remember they will want your votes come election time so they will do what the people want.

If you still want to wear masks and continue social distancing you have every right to. But people need to get back to the way of life they want.

Here in Idaho we are stage 4 and masks are recommended but not required (except Costco and the CDA school district). My wife and I bit the bullet and are sending our kids to private school for at least this year. They get to go to school everyday and don't have to wear masks. Back to the way it should be.

Same old, same old. If you were to put your “thinking” caps on, you would light up like a glow stick.
The longer you resist doing what the scientists recommend the longer you will drag on the miserable conditions we have to live with. I think if you don’t like the orders given where you are, you should go where there are none. Ask Corn... Idaho is nice. Some of us accept the responsibility required for not spreading Covid because we want life to go back to normal and understand recommendations on how to slow or stop the spread would be smart to follow. The ones complaining about the very simple requirements are the ones continuing to keep the virus going. Thanks! For the rest of us, stay smart Stay safe.

It seems to me that the states/cities that are mandating people to wear mask and closing down businesses are the ones with the most cases. People need to be exposed to things to build immunity. When you lock yourself in your home or mask, you are not building your immunity. So when ever these mandates are lifted many people will get sick. Than the mandates will be put back in place and this will be the new norm.

We have 3 friends who used the drop box at the Library and they all have been received by the tracking. Dropping ours off tomorrow.

Oct 21 : 01:32pm
We mailed our ballots and got confirmation that they are where they need to be

Oct 21 : 01:21pm
@Sportyj: No, it was just two days ago.

Oct 21 : 12:30pm
I dropped mine off at the post office yesterday, received confirmation of receipt today from ballottrax (you have to sign up for it and updates come from caballottrax via email at every step of the way). Interested to see how long before it gets delivered to elections office but at least I have documentation.

Oct 21 : 12:25pm
Dave - I called the elections office and they said to give ours until next Monday before we move forward with “next steps” (whatever that means). Knowing yours was dropped over a week ago and still hasn’t been updated makes me even more worried. Hoping our ballots are not lost!

Oct 21 : 12:18pm
We deposited ours in the library drop box on Monday. Haven't received notification yet either.

Oct 21 : 12:18pm
Benny - I wish I would have just used the post office. Had spoken with some people who said to try and limit the impact on PO since already overburdened. Apparently that was bad advice. There are two official drop boxes in Big Bear - apparently they are only picking up every 96 hours. Hopefully I can locate my ballot!

Mailed it from the post office, was scanned in transition and received pretty quick. I would probably just mail it. It should have registered by now, unless they're only emptying that once a week? I didn't think we even had drop boxes up here for that? Really no need with all the post offices.

Oct 21 : 11:57am
Has anyone else used the ballot drop boxes in town? I dropped mine at the library a week ago and it’s still not showing up as received at the county office.
