Exposure to Blood on Surface
I work at an outdoor facility that has wooden planks for flooring. A guest at my facility of unknown status cut his foot open on a splintered board today. There was a trail of blood drops back to the broken board, but no blood visible on the shard that appeared to have cut him. I was picking tearing off the shard of broken board and cut my thumb with it, causing a light laceration that bled.

What is my risk from this? Do I need PEP? It is 85 degrees outside, although the board was probably a bit hotter. Could the virus survive for 5-10 minutes outside of the body?

Thank you.
