What to Do About COVID-19

Know the Symptoms

Symptoms of COVID-19 may appear 2-14 days after exposure. Common symptoms often include one or more of the following*:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

If You Are Experiencing Symptoms

Do NOT go directly to the ER

Call your primary health care provider

Wait for his or her instruction before visiting a clinic

Call 911 only if experiencing SEVERE symptoms*:

  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Persistent chest pain or pressure
  • Extreme confusion or fatigue
  • Bluish lips or face

*Consult your provider for any other severe or concerning symptom

Get the care you need

In many cases, the most appropriate course is to treat mild symptoms at home and reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 to others. Calling your primary care provider ensures they can review your condition on the phone and minimize possible exposure to other patients and team members if you must report to the clinic.

If you do not have a primary care provider or prefer to consult with a provider online, you may choose one of our online care options.
