How does COVID-19 spread?

The most likely transmission is person-to-person through close contact with respiratory droplets (in other words a cough or sneeze). The virus can also live on surfaces for days, which means if you touch a doorknob, grocery basket, etc. and then touch your face you are infected. The incubation period from exposure to illness is 2 to 14 days.
