Coronaviruses can be transmitted from person to person through respiratory droplets.  That is, the “spray” after a cough or sneeze.  This viral material is in these droplets and can be breathed into the windpipe and lungs, where the virus can then lead to an infection.

You are at risk for contracting SARS-CoV-2 if you come in contact with someone who is carrying it, especially if you’ve been exposed to their saliva or been near them when they’ve coughed or sneezed.

Older people and people with certain health conditions have a higher risk for severe complications if they contract the virus.  These health conditions include:

  • Lung conditions, such as COPD and asthma
  • Certain heart conditions
  • Immune system conditions such as HIV
  • Cancer that requires treatment
  • Severe Obesity
  • Other health conditions, if not well-managed, such as diabetes, kidney disease or liver disease

Pregnant women have a higher risk of complications from other viral infections, but its not yet known if this is the case for COVID-19.  The CDC states that pregnant women seem to have the same risk of contracting the virus as adults who are not pregnant.
