Coronavirus isn’t easily spread by touching surfaces, CDC now says
Spread of COVID-19 can still happen but risk is low
ORLANDO, Fla. – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has revised its assessment of how the coronavirus is most likely spread.
The agency now says COVID-19 is not easily spread by touching contaminated surfaces or commonly shared objects.
CDC officials stress that while the risk is low there is still a chance a person could get coronavirus if they touch a contaminated surface. However, they say the main threat continues to be through person-to-person contact.
Experts recommend that people continue to wash their hands frequently and sanitize frequently touched areas.
