COVID is primarily spread through respiratory droplets; meaning coughs, sneezes, or even talking. Anything that would transmit saliva is a way COVID can spread. If a sick person who just wiped their nose touched a surface, you then touched the surface and touched your mouth, you could contract COVID. The virus can live on surfaces which is why it is important to wash your hands frequently and wear a mask.
Great question. Social Distancing. Masks. Handwashing. Do not participate in large gatherings and keep 6 ft from people when you are out and about. Wear your mask as it protects you and the person next to you. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. Sing yourself happy birthday, twice. If you are tired of that song try the chorus to Jolene by Dolly Parton.
