How do I know if I have COVID-19?
COVID-19 is spread through close, person-to-person contact. You may experience symptoms in as few as a couple of days to as many as 14 days. Respiratory symptoms range from mild to severe and include fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
If you think you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or if you are exhibiting these symptoms and believe you have had contact with someone who has traveled to an area of concern, see your doctor and get tested. Call your doctor or medical provider before showing up and avoid close physical contact with anybody until you have received instructions from a doctor.
