Would I catch covid 19 if I go out for a walk?

They say coronavirus lasts 3 hours in airborne and you can catch it even if you walk in a park.

    Very unlikely, as long as you are walking where there are no other people around you.

    You can walk in the park safely. The virus is dispersed, falls very quickly outdoors. Just stay 6 feet away. Sunlight also kills the virus in relatively short order.

    In a closed room, bus with someone infected, get out.


    The sun is shining, the weather is getting warmer, and Canadians cooped up because of the COVID-19 outbreak may be itching to start enjoying the outdoors.Infectious disease specialists say that’s fine to do, but they’re still asking people to use common sense in choosing their destinations.That means crowded parks, boardwalks and beaches are a no-go, at least for now.

    Bogoch said people venturing outdoors should be especially wary of potential high-contact surfaces — park benches, railings — anything that could transfer the virus from a sick person to a healthy one.He said COVID-19 can stick to surfaces from “a couple hours to a couple days” but tends to “stay viable” on metals and plastics longer than it does on paper. Environmental factors like ultraviolet rays and heat can also affect the viability of the virus.
