Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a new virus that causes respiratory illnesses. It is spread between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.1 Because COVID-19 patients are bogging down the healthcare systems of many countries like China, Italy, Spain, and now the United States, slowing down the spread of the virus is of the utmost importance. By slowing down the spread of the virus, we can make sure hospitals are not overwhelmed and hospital staff have enough manpower and resources to take care of infected patients. Taking droplet precautions is one of the best ways to slow down the spread of COVID-19.
