If you think you have symptoms of COVID-19, stay home and call your doctor. Let your doctor know:
- what type of symptoms you have
- how severe your symptoms are
- whether you’ve traveled abroad or had contact with someone who has
- whether you’ve been around large groups of people
You may need to be evaluated if:
- your symptoms are severe
- you’re an older adult
- you have underlying health conditions
- you’ve been exposed to someone with COVID-19
Your doctor will determine if you need testing and what type of treatment is best.
If your symptoms are mild and you have no underlying health conditions, your doctor may tell you to just stay home, rest, stay hydrated, and to avoid contact with other people.
If your symptoms get worse after a few days of rest, it’s important to get prompt medical care.
