Symptoms show up in people within two to 14 days of exposure to the virus. A person infected with COVID-19 is contagious for up to two days before symptoms appear and can remain contagious for 10 to 20 days.
The best way to prevent and slow down the spread of COVID-19 is to protect yourself by getting vaccinated; washing your hands often; wearing a mask, if needed; and staying home when you feel sick.
Everyone 6 months and older can get the updated COVID-19 vaccine.
Staying up to date with all recommended COVID-19 vaccines is the best way to protect yourself from severe illness, hospitalization, and death.
