What Should I do if I have Symptoms of COVID-19?
Patients with COVID-19 have had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms that may include:
- Fever of 100 degrees or higher
- Shortness of breath
- Loss of smell or taste
- Sore throat
- Body aches
In the past 14 days, if you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or have developed any new symptoms that may include fever of 100 degrees or higher, cough, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste, diarrhea, sore throat, or body aches, stay home and contact your medical provider to discuss your care options, or seek emergency care if symptoms worsen.
How can I get tested?
COVID-19 tests are being conducted only with a medical provider’s order. Community members MUST “call before they go” to their healthcare provider’s office if they are experiencing symptoms, have traveled recently, or have been exposed to someone with confirmed COVID-19.
