The latest advice for contact lens wearers is that there is no evidence to date that contact lens wear should be avoided by healthy individuals, or that contact lens wearers are more at risk of contracting coronavirus then those wearing spectacles.
To help maintain healthy contact lens wear, all contact lenses wearers should follow correct lens wear and care instructions, including thoroughly washing and drying your hands before handling, applying and removing your contact lenses. Spectacles should be washed regularly using warm soapy water. In the absence of the diagnosis of COVID-2 and in the absence of symptoms of fever, cough, red eye or discharge and provided that scrupulous hygiene is practised then contact lens wear is permissible. Social distancing ( minimum of 2m) should be exercised. Spectacle wear would be the preferred mode of sight correction or daily wear contact lens wear.

Whilst transmission is via viral respiratory particles we know that viral particles can be found in the tears and this can cause viral conjunctivitis. It is probable that the affected individual will experience primary symptoms such as fever and cough.
