How is it Spread?


Adenoviruses are spread like the common cold.

The viruses can be spread from person to person via coughing or sneezing.

People may also become infected by touching something with adenovirus on it and then touching their mouth, nose, or eyes. For example, adenoviruses can be transferred to a doorknob when an infected person sneezes into his/her hands and then touches the doorknob before washing.

Germs can also be spread if an infected person sneezes or coughs onto tabletops or other items that might be touched by other people.
To prevent the spread of disease, it is important to practice good health habits.
