COVID-19 affects different people in different ways. Infected people have had a wide range of symptoms reported – from mild symptoms to severe illness.

Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

  • Fever or chills

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle or body aches

  • Headache

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • Sore throat

  • Congestion or runny nose

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Diarrhea

  • Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:

  • Trouble breathing

  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest

  • New confusion

  • Inability to wake or stay awake

  • Bluish lips or face



To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, everyone should:

  • Clean your hands often, either with soap and water for 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Put distance between yourself and other people (at least 6 feet).

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces daily.

  • CDC recommends that people wear masks in public settings and when around people outside of their household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

  • Masks may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others.


If you have possible or confirmed COVID-19:

  • Stay home except to get medical care.

  • Monitor your symptoms carefully. If your symptoms get worse, call your healthcare provider immediately.

  • Get rest and stay hydrated. Take over-the-counter medicines, such as acetaminophen, to help you feel better.

  • If you have a medical appointment, notify your healthcare provider ahead of time that you have or may have COVID-19.

  • Stay in a specific room and away from other people in your home. If possible, use a separate bathroom. If you must be around others, wear a mask.
