Monitor Your Health
Monitoring your health and knowing the symptoms of COVID-19 can help stop the spread of the virus. People with COVID-19 have reported a wide range of symptoms, from mild to severe. Symptoms to watch for include fever or chills, cough, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea.
If you have difficulty breathing, chest pain, confusion, or changes in color on your lips, gums, face, around the eyes or nails, seek medical care immediately. More information on the signs and symptoms of COVID-19 can be found on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) COVID-19 website.
