How Reducing Time of Exposure Helps

Low vs. High Dose Load

The original guidance given about COVID was that the longer the time you spend with someone infected, and the closer you are in proximity to them, the more your dose load will increase. With that higher dose load comes an enhanced chance that you, too, will get the virus.

Think of when you pass by another person quickly on the sidewalk. The dose load is still low. If you compare it to being in a confined space for an extended period with someone infected, you can see that you face a far greater risk.

Decrease Your Chance of Catching an Infection

Our immune systems are powerful. Even with one that’s working at a high capacity, however, if exposed to too much of a bug for an extended period, you have a chance of developing an active infection.

The important takeaway from this idea is to reduce the length of time you’re in the presence of someone who may have the potential for illness.

In our next post, we’ll talk about another essential aspect in your control: cleanliness.
