  12. Name one of the three methods of transmission (see question 9) and briefly describe it. (1 pt)

    Airborne, Surface, or Direct Contract transmission with appropriately similar description.

    Airborne Transmission: Infection spread through exposure to those virus-containing respiratory droplets comprised of smaller droplets and particles that can remain suspended in the air over long distances (usually greater than 6 feet) and time (typically hours).

    Direct Contact Transmission: Infection spread through exposure to virus-containing respiratory droplets (i.e., larger and smaller droplets and particles) exhaled by an infectious person. Transmission is most likely to occur when someone is close to the infectious person, generally within about 6 feet.

    Surface Transmission:  Infection spread through direct contact with an infectious person (e.g., touching during a handshake) or with an article or surface that has become contaminated. The latter is sometimes referred to as “fomite transmission”.
