Re: aerosols, what I've read to date indicates that the virus can spread through aerosols, but that this is most likely to happen to healthcare workers during intubation. It's not how it typically spreads in public, though.

What does seem to true, though, is that 'air droplets' can be exhaled simply by breathing, so if you're sitting in close proximity to someone, or if you're in a large meeting room and walking around meeting people for an hour, you're in danger of contracting the disease even if nobody shows classic symptoms like coughing or sneezing.
