What to Do If You Are Sick With the Symptoms of Novel Coronavirus 2019

Symptoms of COVID-19

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough and shortness of breath. If you have been exposed to someone with laboratory confirmed COVID-19 and are experiencing fever with either cough or shortness of breath, you might have COVID-19. You can contact your doctor to see if you need to be tested.

Call ahead to a healthcare professional if you develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing. Your healthcare professional will work with your state’s public health department and CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
