Blood itself is not a biohazard, it’s what may be in the potentially hazardous blood, such as bloodborne pathogens (BBPs) or infectious microorganisms, that can cause diseases.

As of March 17, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) does not have information specifically regarding how pregnant women are reacting to COVID-19 exposure. However, it should be noted that pregnant women are more susceptible to viral infections, which would include COVID-19. Pregnant women should be extra diligent and follow routine preventive measures to avoid infection, such as disinfecting their home, washing their hands regularly, and avoiding crowded locations and people who are sick.

Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for more information regarding coronavirus, its spread, and prevention.
