COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2
Scientific and Statistical Information

This page is for those readers who desire more detailed scientific information about COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 and have already read and followed recommendations from the CDC, New York State Department of Health, and Fulton County Health Department. It does not replace those recommendations. Only government sources and scientific literature will be cited on this page.

COVID-19 is the disease caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2).

Of great significance in the above is that aerosols are a major pathway for the transmission of SARS-CoV-2. Aerosols spread throughout an indoor room within five minutes, making the six-foot social distancing practice problematic. A significant percentage of aerosols also pass through cloth masks. Virii in aerosols have a half-life of roughly 1.1 hours.
