FAST FACT OF THE DAY: How Far Does a Sneeze Travel?


Smaller Droplets: 19-26 feet

Large Droplets: 3-6 feet

The smaller droplets tend to stay suspended in the air longer than the bigger droplets- that quickly settle

Another interesting fact is that sneezes can actually travel up to 100 mph!

Lesson learned from this is, cover your sneezes and your cough to help prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
