What we know:

COVID-19 symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath — and may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure.

Person-to-person spread mainly occurs via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes (similar to how influenza and other respiratory pathogens spread).

People are thought to be most contagious when they are most ill. People who are not symptomatic can also be contagious.

Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH) do not recommend the use of personal face masks by individuals who have not had prolonged exposure to individuals who have been identified as at-risk.

For more information please use verified sources such as:

CDC
Los Angeles County Public Health
CA State: COVID-19
City of Los Angeles: COVID-19
