What is an incubation period and how long is it for coronavirus?
An incubation period is how long after you are exposed to an illness before you start showing symptoms. For coronavirus, it's still too early to tell, but experts think it may be between 2-14 days. That means, you may have been infected, and may be able to infect others, for up to two weeks before you start feeling sick.

Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick.
Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.
