Here’s a myth you have heard about the coronavirus: there is no COVID at night.

This is not true. The new coronavirus spreads from person to person when an infected person coughs or sneezes, and possibly via surfaces that are contaminated with the virus. Infection can happen at any time of day, including nighttime. It is important to follow guidelines to protect your health. These include staying six feet away from other people because this is the distance the virus droplets can travel when an infected persons coughs or sneezes, and regular hand washing.
