If You Feel Sick - Call Your Doctor
COVID-19 symptoms include fever, dry cough, and/or the shortness of breath associated with respiratory illness, and other flu-like symptoms. Sinus congestion or pain, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea are unlikely to be associated with COVID-19.
Call your primary care doctor if you experience symptoms and believe you have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19.
If you need to go to the hospital because you are having a medical emergency, call 9-1-1 or get to a hospital immediately.
If you have symptoms that are difficult to manage, but not that serious, call your primary care doctor or seek urgent care.
If you have symptoms that seem like a common cold, but aren’t that serious, isolate yourself, treat it at home, and try not to share the infection with others.
