COVID-19: Physical Distancing

Symptoms of COVID-19

  • Fever.
  • Cough.
  • Shortness of breath, difficulty breathing.
  • Chills, repeated shaking with chills.
  • Muscle pain.
  • Sore throat.
  • Loss of taste or smell.

COVID-19 Transmission

  • The virus is thought to spread mainly from person to person between people who are in close contact with one another.
  • Respiratory droplets are produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.
  • These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of persons nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.


Physical Distancing

  • Physical distancing is a health and safety intervention used to reduce the likelihood of transmitting communicable disease. Asymptomatic persons can still spread COVID-19. A disease is considered asymptomatic if a person is a carrier of infection but experiences no symptoms.
  • Physical distancing involves maintaining space requirements in public settings and the workplace.
  • Physical distancing requires six feet of distance between persons. This minimizes exposure to respiratory droplets that could carry the virus from coughing, sneezing, or talking.
  • When physical distancing is not practical, considering the use of pyhsical barriers or appropriate respiratory protection such as particulate filtering facepiece respirators, tight-fitting respirators, or powered air purifying respirators.
