    Remember diarrhea can be an early or only sign. Shedding through stool can continue 14 days after negative nasal swab. While there is no known case of transmission through feces, precautions should be taken. One thought is that when flushing the toilet there can be aerosolization of the virus up to 3 feet. So... close the lid, disinfect area around, wash hands thoroughly, wear mask if sharing bathroom with COVID+ persons. And of course when you use in public places. Also found in mouth-gargling with Listerine Coolmint 2 times for 20 seconds -studies showed this killed the virus better than anything- plus wearing a mask, you will have nice smelling breath. CWO
