What Are The Symptoms Of The Coronavirus? How Long Do They Take To Appear?

How Does Someone Become Infected From COVID-19?
Person-to-person transmission has been confirmed. The virus is believed to travel on droplets that exit someone’s mouth when they cough. For this reason, face masks are highly recommended if you test positive or suspect someone is infected. If you are infected but not showing symptoms, a mask will help contain droplets.
