Are you sick? How to know if you have COVID-19.
If you have signs of illness, it is likely that you have allergies, the common cold or the flu. If you have a high fever, dry cough, and/or shortness of breath, or two of the more following symptoms: Fever, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat or new loss of taste or smell, contact your primary care physician. They will help determine if you need to be seen immediately and/or given a Covid-19 test. In any case, if you are not well, it is best to stay home and limit your contact with others until you are healthy again.
