Understanding the Symptoms of COVID-19

Signs and symptoms of COVID-19 may appear two to fourteen days after exposure and can include:

Fever
Cough
Dificulty Breathing

The severity of COVID-19 symptoms can range from very mild to severe. Some people have no symptoms. People who are older or have existing chronic medical conditions, such as heart or lung disease or diabetes, may be at higher risk of serious illness. This is similar to what is seen with other respiratory illnesses, such as influenza.

If You're Experiencing Severe Symptoms:

None
Mild
Moderate
Severe

COVID-19 Medical Emergencies are like ANY Medical Emergencies. If you, your child, or someone you are with is experiencing difficulty breathing and extreme shortness of breath; new confusion or inability to waken/arouse; bluish lips or face; or any other symptoms of a medical emergency, call 911. If COVID-19 is suspected, the caller should notify the operator if possible so responders are prepared.

Stay Home If Your Symptoms Are:

None
Mild
Moderate
Severe

Most cases of COVID-19 are mild and recovery can be done at home. Rest, drink fluids, stay six-feet away from others, and wash your hands and surfaces
