It is important to note that there are NOT enough resources available to test everyone who may have symptoms of COVID-19.

If you have mild symptoms such as a cough or fever, please STAY HOME and ISOLATE from others in your household.

STAY HOME. ISOLATE FROM OTHERS IN THE HOUSE:

Until you are fever free for at least 72 hours (that’s 3 full days of no fever without the use of medicine that reduces fevers)

AND

Other symptoms have improved (for example when your cough or shortness of breath have improved)

AND

At least 7 days have passed since your symptoms first appeared


If you start to experience severe symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider for screening.
