On March 18, WNYC’s Brian Lehrer Show welcomed back Jessica Justman, MD, ICAP’s senior technical director, to discuss social distancing.

“The average time to get sick after being exposed is about five days, but it can take as long as 14 days,” said Dr. Justman. “I think a two-week period will allow us to get a better sense of what impact our current social distancing is having on the number of new cases. If it’s working, we should start to see a reduction in the number of new cases in about two weeks from now.”
