    A covalent bond is a chemical bond that involves sharing a pair of electrons between atoms in a molecule.

    Anything with ions involved is an ionic or metallic bonding and is not covalent.

    Exactly, another helpful tool is to remember that covalent bonds only occur between non-metals while ionic bonds occur between a metal and a nonmetal, and metallic bonds only occur between two metals (usually)
