In brief: Droplets

Primarily, RSV is transmitted through contact with droplets from the eyes, nose, or mouth of an infected person.

In brief: Droplet or debris

The virus of RSV is in the airway secretions of symptomatic and asymptomatic carriers.
It can be transmitted thru inhaled airborn droplets or debris rubbed near oral or ocular tissue.In season many relatively asymptomatic adults will spread the infection as well as kids at home/day care or school. Groups of christmas shoppers, or holiday revelers are also great reservoirs of the germ.
