According to the US Center for Disesase Control :

How long can an infected person spread this virus to others?
At the current time, CDC believes that this virus has the same properties in
terms of spread as seasonal flu viruses. With seasonal flu, studies have
shown that people may be contagious from one day before they develop
symptoms to up to 7 days after they get sick.  Children, especially younger
children, might potentially be contagious for longer periods. CDC is
studying the virus and its capabilities to try to learn more and will
provide more information as it becomes available.
