How long does COVID-19 survive on surfaces?

When are you protected against COVID-19 after being vaccinated?

After being expelled from the body, coronaviruses can survive on surfaces for hours to days. If a person touches the contaminated surface, they may deposit the virus at the eyes, nose, or mouth, where it can enter the body and cause infection.


  • COVID-19 in particular seems to behave like other coronaviruses. Studies suggest that coronaviruses may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days. 
  • This depends on various factors, like the type of surface, temperature, and humidity level.
  • To protect yourself and others from germs, disinfect surfaces with a 70% alcohol aerosol sanitizer. Clean your hands with soap and water, and then sanitize with spray hand sanitizer.
