Currently, there is no evidence that wearing contact lenses increases your risk of contracting the new Coronavirus.

There is some evidence that you can get COVID-19 from touching a surface contaminated with SARS-CoV-2 and then touching your eyes without washing your hands.

Contact lens wearers touch their eyes more than people who don't. That could increase your risk. But contaminated surfaces aren’t the main way SARS-CoV-2 spreads. Washing your hands thoroughly, especially after touching surfaces, can keep you safe.

There’s also no evidence that wearing regular eyeglasses protects you against contracting SARS-CoV-2.
