What is the recovery time for COVID-19?
Can you still get COVID-19 after recovering from it?
Immunity is complicated and, yes, you can still get reinfected with COVID-19. In fact, a recent study found that unvaccinated adults were twice as likely to get reinfected with COVID-19 than those who got vaccinated after they’d recovered from their illness.

What should a person who recovered from COVID-19 do when they are exposed to it again, according to the CDC?
The following applies to a person who has clinically recovered from SARS-CoV-2 infection that was confirmed with a viral diagnostic test and then, within 3 months since the date of symptom onset of the previous illness episode (or date of positive viral diagnostic test if the person never experienced symptoms), is identified as a contact of a new case. If the person remains asymptomatic since the new exposure, then they do not need to be retested for SARS-CoV-2 and do not need to be quarantined. However, if the person experiences new symptoms consistent with COVID-19 and an evaluation fails to identify a diagnosis other than SARS-CoV-2 infection (e.g., influenza), then repeat viral diagnostic testing may be warranted, in consultation with an infectious disease specialist and public health authorities for isolation guidance.
How long does it take to develop immunity after a COVID-19 infection?
Can I get COVID-19 while swimming?
The COVID-19 virus does not transmit through water while swimming. However, the virus spreads between people when someone has close contact with an infected person.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
Avoid crowds and maintain at least a 1-metre distance from others, even when you are swimming or at swimming areas. Wear a mask when you’re not in the water and you can’t stay distant. Clean your hands frequently, cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue or bent elbow, and stay home if you’re unwell.
Are pools, lakes and beaches safe during the COVID-19 pandemic?
The potential for COVID-19 to spread at pools, lakes and beaches is related to the crowds at these places, which is why it is crucial to practice social distancing, even while swimming.

How to reduce the chances of getting COVID-19?
• Wash your hands well and often. Use hand sanitizer when you’re not near soap and water.
• Try not to touch your face.
• Wear a face mask when you go out.
• Follow your community guidelines for staying home.
• When you do go out in public, leave at least 6 feet of space between you and others.

Does zinc help fight the coronavirus disease?
There’s some evidence that zinc helps your body fight a cold, but scientists don’t know if it helps ease COVID-19 symptoms. There is no evidence that taking zinc will keep you from catching COVID-19.

How do I prevent getting COVID-19 from a sick family member?
• Put on a mask and ask the sick person to put on a mask before entering the room.
• Wear gloves when you touch or have contact with the sick person’s blood, stool, or body fluids,
such as saliva, mucus, vomit, and urine. Throw out gloves into a lined trash can and wash your
hands right away.
◦ Practice everyday preventive actions to keep from getting sick: wash your hands often; avoid
touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; and frequently clean and disinfect surfaces.
What are some ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in addition to wearing a mask and social distancing?
When is someone with COVID-19 infectious?
The onset and duration of viral shedding and the period of infectiousness for COVID-19 are not yet known with certainty. Based on current evidence, scientists believe that persons with mild to moderate COVID-19 may shed replication-competent SARS-CoV-2 for up to 10 days following symptom onset, while a small fraction of persons with severe COVID-19, including immunocompromised persons, may shed replication-competent virus for up to 20 days. It is possible that SARS-CoV-2 RNA may be detectable in the upper or lower respiratory tract for weeks after illness onset, similar to infections with MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV. However, detection of viral RNA does not necessarily mean that infectious virus is present. Based on existing literature, the incubation period (the time from exposure to development of symptoms) of SARS-CoV-2 and other coronaviruses (e.g., MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV) ranges from 2–14 days.
How can surgical masks protect me from COVID-19?
How does one catch the coronavirus?
How long can you spread COVID-19 after testing positive?
People with COVID-19 can spread the virus to other people for 10 days after they develop symptoms, or 10 days from the date of their positive test if they do not have symptoms. The person with COVID-19 and all members of the household should wear a well-fitted mask and consistently, inside the home.
Can an infected person spread COVID-19 before showing symptoms?
An infected person can spread COVID-19 starting 2 days before the person has any symptoms or tests positive. People who have COVID-19 don’t always have obvious symptoms. A person is still considered a close contact even if they were wearing a mask while they were around someone with COVID-19.
