The CDC says symptoms can range from mild to severe, and some carriers of the virus may not even know they have it because they don’t show any symptoms.

These symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus, ABC reports.

This is why, the CDC says, it is important to wear a face mask when you cannot keep at least six feet from someone else in a public place.
