COVID-19 SYMPTOMS

Symptoms of coronavirus may include fever, cough, difficulty breathing and sore throat. Symptoms generally appear two to 14 days after exposure.

Other symptoms include chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache and new loss of taste and/or smell.

Health officials said most patients experience mild symptoms and can recover at home.

However, some patients, particularly those with underlying medical conditions, may experience more severe respiratory illness.

Coronavirus appears to spread in similar ways to the flu and the common cold, which includes through the air by coughing and sneezing, close personal contact such as touching and shaking hands and touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose or eyes.

Anyone experiencing symptoms is urged to call their health care provider and not just show up in person.
