What Is the Infectious Period of Bronchitis?

Q:
What is the infectious period of bronchitis?

A:
The infectious period of bronchitis depends on the type of virus that you have. In most cases, the infectious period will be a few days, and possibly as long as a week. Since you may not know what kind of illness you have and doctors will not test for individual viruses out of hundreds of them, it’s best to assume you could spread the disease while you have cold symptoms.
