How long will it take me to develop the coronavirus disease after exposure to someone with COVID-19?
The median incubation period for COVID-19 is 4.9 – 7 days, with a range of 1 – 14 days. Most people who are infected will develop symptoms within 14 days of infection.
How much distance should I keep from others to avoid the spread of the coronavirus disease?
Coronavirus is most likely to spread from person to person when we come into close contact with one another. We can all help stop the spread by keeping our distance. This means do not shake hands, or exchange physical greetings, and wherever possible, stay at least 1.5 metres away from others.
What should I do if I develop symptoms of the coronavirus disease?
If you develop symptoms (fever, a cough, sore throat, tiredness or shortness of breath) within 14 days of leaving country or region that is at higher risk for COVID-19, or within 14 days of last contact of a confirmed case, you should arrange to see your doctor for urgent assessment. Also If you are living in an area where COVID-19 is prevalent you should contact your healthy care provider.
