Coronavirus Symptoms & Testing

Recommended Posts

Symptoms of COVID-19 can include: 
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath 
  • Diarrhea

The symptoms may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure. Reported illnesses have ranged from people with little to no symptoms to people being severely ill and dying.

The CDC has put together a "tool" to self check yourself in the event of getting sick, although it is mostly a word document.  You can find the article here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/testing.html

Who should be tested

Not everyone needs to be tested for COVID-19. Here is some information that might help in making decisions about seeking care or testing.

  • Most people have mild illness and are able to recover at home.
  • There is no treatment specifically approved for this virus.
  • Testing results may be helpful to inform decision-making about who you come in contact with.

CDC has guidance for who should be tested, but decisions about testing are at the discretion of state and local health departments and/or individual clinicians.

  • Clinicians should work with their state and local health departments to coordinate testing through public health laboratories, or work with clinical or commercial laboratories.
