Published April 2, 2020



Nebraska Medicine infectious diseases expert Mark Rupp, MD, and UNMC’s John Lowe, PhD, discuss a recently released study.

  • The study looked at COVID-19 positive patient care areas
  • Scientists found the virus on surfaces and in the air, including in hallways outside patient rooms
  • This does not mean the virus is airborne
  • It is possible the virus remains on health care workers' clothing after leaving the room
