A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found when the virus becomes suspended in small droplets it can stay airborne for about half an hour. 

Dr. Madhavan Pisharodi, a neurosurgeon at Pisharodi Clinic in Brownsville said he proposed a theory of how long COVID-19 can stay in the air.
