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.

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.

RE: Kmart. Not only is stock at an all time low, apparently so is the mentality and attitudes of the employees. Charged us $7 for a bag of candy plainly marked $4 and then argued about it.
Sporting goods is reduced to one wall of last years fishing lures at full retail prices.
No Halloween stuff.

City has announced 'new' plan for vacation rentals and I quote " City staff have considered numerous concerns and helpful suggestions from our residents, vacation rental owners, and vacation rental managers over the past several weeks," Would love to hear from anyone non government or city official that was consulted in these 'suggestions'?? Thinkingi we are being railroaded once again.

Just read newest edition of Elevation 6752 - Big Bear Newletter. There are a number of items included that now have me convinced the city officials have completely lost all cognitive thought and common sense. Really, a lakefront park at the Village. I guess the traffic problem isn't bad enough yet. A gondola public transportation. How about fixing the regular public transprotation. And I have some comments in General Discussion/Vacation Rental Issues concerning the 'new' plan the city is going to present to us. wow. Not putting soapbox away just yet, I can't believe this stuff.

Kmart 2nd bankruptcy, this is what happens when Corporations' CEOs run companies into the ground and abandon them. Kmart has no purchasing power anymore, with all of the shortages on products due to shutdowns, only companies that have good reputations and $$ can get the goods the consumers want. Even Sam's club can't seem to supply toilet paper during the shortages.

Yep, K-Mart is only socks and underwear basically now. Needed new silverware, nope. Needed a couple of pillowcases for a rental, nope. Needed a replacement coffee maker, nope (thank you DIY), needed some new cheaters, still have those thankfully, can't be blind . Really, why even bother. Just leaving us locals out in the wind once again.

The Christmas stuff KMart has out is just a few fake trees. It is committed with the leftover patio tables. We all deserve better than this.

Hank, I've been voting by mail for years, but the last four years it has been very convenient to drop at my local polling place, there was zero line & dropping a completed ballot was just walking in & depositing in the box.

There is a big advantage to taking time at home to fill out ballot.
