COVID Q&A

WISCONSIN — Aside from coming down with coronavirus yourself, one of the other major concerns the general public is facing is spreading it to their loved ones.

According to the CDC, someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 could remain contagious "for at least 10 days after signs or symptoms first appeared."

Although this topic is still under investigation, if someone is asymptomatic or their symptoms go away, the CDC claims it's possible for them to remain contagious for at least 10 days after testing positive.

This means that isolation and precautious should be taken until 10 days after the onset of symptoms and until a fever has not been registered for at least 24 hours without the use of any fever-reducing medications.

It's also possible to spread the virus for at least one day before experience any symptoms, similarly to how they would the flu.
