What should I do if I am exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19?

If you feel sick with a fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smellĀ and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you live in or have recently traveled to an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19 you should call your primary healthcare provider. Your primary healthcare provider will work with the state’s public health department and CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.

Where Can I Get Tested for COVID-19?

If you believe you may have come in contact with someone with COVID-19 or are exhibiting mild symptoms and want to be tested for the virus, please speak with your primary healthcare provider. Your doctor will determine your need for testing and your treatment options depending on the severity of the situation.
