Do all encounters with the coronavirus present the same risks for becoming infected and becoming very sick?

Infection and Spread

A: No. Definitely worth reading this full article but here is a summary = TL;DR = too long; didn’t read

Prolonged one-on-one encounters with infected individuals (ex: a visit with a person with the virus or patient care in a health setting with infected individuals ) carry greater risk of infection than short, indirect exposures (ex: passing someone on a run, delivery package). When more virus enters your body, your body must work harder to control the spread of the virus. Keep up the hand washing and social distancing to avoid encounters. Protect those that can’t avoid repeat and prolonged encounters with appropriate PPE.
