When should I seek medical attention?

If you think you have been exposed, it is important to closely monitor symptoms. Most mild cases of COVID-19 resolve within 2 weeks without treatment.

Seek medical attention immediately if you develop severe symptoms, especially if you experience any of the following:

  • Fever greater than 102 °F (taken with a thermometer)
  • Severe difficulty breathing
  • Coughing up blood
  • Chest pain
  • Swelling in the legs
  • Irregular heart rhythm
  • Yellowing of skin or whites of eyes
  • Dark-colored urine or urinating less often, or in smaller amounts than usual
  • Persistent vomiting or diarrhea
  • Intense abdominal pain

If you seek medical attention, be sure to call ahead before visiting the facility, this will help the facility keep other people from possibly getting infected or exposed.

  • Tell any healthcare provider that you may have COVID-19.
  • Put on a facemask before you enter any healthcare facility.
