How do you get coronavirus?
Like the common cold and the flu, coronavirus spreads between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) and through respiratory droplets, according to the CDC.
Coronavirus is spreading rapidly from person to person, and scientists are still learning more about how coronavirus spreads.
There’s no evidence that the virus can be transmitted through food, according to the CDC.
It is, however, possible that a person can get the virus by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own face. There is likely a very low risk of spread from food products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks, according to the CDC.
