SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19
Symptoms of coronavirus may include fever, cough, difficulty breathing and sore throat. Symptoms usually appear two to 14 days after exposure.
Other symptoms include chills, repeated chills with chills, muscle aches, headache and new loss of taste and / or smell.
Health officials said most patients experience mild symptoms and can recover at home.
However, some patients, especially patients with underlying medical conditions, may experience more severe respiratory disease.
Coronavirus appears to spread in the same way as the flu and cold, which includes through the air by coughing and sneezing, close personal contact such as touching and shaking hands and touching an object or surface with the virus on it and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes.
Anyone experiencing symptoms is encouraged to call their healthcare provider and not just meet in person.
