Testing

All persons should self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 which include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle Pain
  • Headache
  • Sore Throat
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

If you are sick and think you may have COVID-19, please stay home call your healthcare provider. Many area providers are testing for COVID-19.

Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19. 

If you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19, you should get medical attention immediately. Emergency warning signs include*:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • New confusion or inability to arouse
  • Bluish lips or face

*This list is not all inclusive. Please consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning.

If you have a medical emergency, call 911.  Notify the operator that you have, or think you might have, COVID-19. If possible, put on a cloth face covering before medical help arrives.  If you are going to the hospital via your own transport, please call your local hospital before arriving.
