Symptoms and What To Do If You Are Sick

Patients with COVID-19 have experienced mild to severe respiratory illness. Symptoms can include fever, cough and shortness of breath, and may appear 2-14 days after exposure.

Residents who suspect that they are infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, should contact their healthcare provider immediately. Those residents should restrict activities outside of their home, except for getting medical care. Do not go to work, school, or public areas. Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.

Note: Face masks are not necessary for the general public. Face masks are used routinely by healthcare professionals and individuals who are already sick.
