CDC: COVID-19 Not Spread Easily From Contaminated Surfaces

Updated information from the agency also outlines what is not considered to pose a high risk for infection

FRIDAY, May 22, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- COVID-19 spreads swiftly between people but is not easily caught from contaminated surfaces, according to updated information from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Revised guidance of the CDC website says the virus "is spreading very easily and sustainably between people," the Washington Post reported.

The updated information also outlines what is not considered to pose a high risk for infection.

The CDC says that touching contaminated objects or surfaces and exposure to infected animals do not seem to be significant methods of COVID-19 transmission, the Post reported.
