    April 7, 2020 -- The Center for Disease Control (CDC) continues to study and learn about how Coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads. The CDC states recent studies suggest that people that do not show symptoms (asymptomatic) may still spread the virus, therefore, we should all be practicing social/physical distancing (a minimum of 6 feet) in order to reduce the spread of Coronavirus. According to another recently published study, backed by the National Institutes of Health, Coronavirus can survive up to 24 hours on cardboard and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel.
