COVID-19 is spread through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.  It spreads between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).  People are thought to be most contagious when they are most symptomatic.  Some spread is possible before people show symptoms, but it is not thought that this is the main way the virus is transmitted.  It is also not thought that touching a surface or object that has the virus on it is the main way the virus spreads
