Frequently asked questions: COVID-19 Transmission Frequently Asked Questions

Aerosol-based Transmission: Are you in the pathway?
Social distancing will not protect anyone in a case such as this.
This student is always equidistant to the speaker (and over 6ft away),
but the outcomes are very different.

On the left, all students are infected with COVID-19.
On the right, no transmission or infection occurs at all.

COVID-19 aerosol-based transmission is entirely dependent on the airflow pathway.
