Airborne Coronavirus?


Q. The news over the weekend was that scientists are now claiming that the coronavirus is airborne. Do we need to be doing anything differently because of this?

A. No. Just stay the course.

While the news was based on an open letter from scientists to the WHO, the actual impact or spread of airborne transmission of COVID-19 is still inconclusive. What we do know, however is that:

  • There are multiple means of transmission, so there is no single black & white solution.

  • Like measles, the virus is transmitted by direct contact with infectious droplets or by airborne spread when an infected person coughs, or sneezes, talks, or simply breathes.

  • We can reduce the potential of transmission through continued social distancing, mask wearing, enhanced sanitation, handwashing, and wellness checks.

Thus, from what we know today about COVID-19, the virus will not spread through HVAC or other air-handling systems, as some media suggested. But, because of the multiple means of transmission, we do still define a close contact as being anyone within six feet of an infected person for 15 minutes – even if either or both wore masks and/or were separated by a plastic barrier.
