CDC changes COVID guidelines for disinfecting homes and surfaces

[WCCO-TV News, April 07, 2021] Experts now say the risk for catching COVID-19 from surfaces is low. Let’s say your keys are contaminated with COVID. It’s possible to get the virus by touching them then your face, but officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say it’s rare.

WCCO spoke to Dr. Frank Rhame, an infectious disease specialist at Abbott Northwestern, which is part of Allina Health.

“It’s become gradually clearer and clearer that airborne droplets account for most of the transmissions,” Rhame said.
