What should I do if I think I might have COVID-19? 

If you recently started having any of the symptoms below, call your doctor to be evaluated for testing or visit a testing location. It can take up to 14 days after being exposed to someone with COVID-19 for you to feel symptoms, such as: 

  • Fever, cough, shortness of breath/trouble breathing 
  • Chills, night sweats, sore throat, muscle/body aches 
  • Loss of taste or smell, headache, confusion, vomiting, diarrhea ​
Who Should Get Tested? 
  • Anyone experiencing any of the COVID-19 symptoms above should get tested. 
  • Anyone, whether or not they have symptoms, who has been exposed to someone who was confirmed to have COVID-19 should get tested right away. 
The Public Health Department is also recommending testing for the following groups of people even if they do not have any symptoms:  
  • Any front line or healthcare worker who regularly interacts with members of the public and cannot maintain social distancing at work should ideally get tested once a month. 
    • This may include those who work in healthcare, homeless shelters, jails and other custodial settings, food banks, public safety/emergency response, food service, grocery, construction, delivery, janitorial, transit, or social work, among other jobs. 
    • ​This does not include those who are able to maintain social distancing while at work, such as essential workers who work in a back office. 
  • Any person who works in a skilled nursing facility should ideally get tested every two weeks. ​
While waiting for test results: 
  • If you have symptoms: isolate as recommended 
  • If you have been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19: quarantine as recommended and monitor symptoms 
  • If you do not have symptoms: follow proper social distancing protocols, wear a face covering, and wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
