What Should I Do If I Have COVID-19 Symptoms?
Symptoms of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, may produce a wide range of symptoms that can vary from mild to debilitating. These symptoms can appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus and usually include one or more of the following:
- Shortness of breath
Some patients with COVID-19 also report achiness, runny nose, sore throat, and gastrointestinal problems. If you are experiencing any of these potential COVID-19 symptoms or believe you may have been in contact with an infected individual, it’s important to stay isolated and seek testing as quickly as possible.
Sometimes, COVID-19 can cause life-threatening complications. If a loved one experiences any of the following symptoms, seek emergency medical care and inform medical professionals of any coronavirus diagnoses or risks:
- Difficulty breathing
- Sudden confusion
- Loss of consciousness
- Bluish lips or face
- Persistent chest pain
