ILLNESS

 

Current symptoms reported for patients with COVID-19 have included mild to severe respiratory illness. Symptoms may include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or Difficulty Breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or Body Aches
  • Headache
  • New Loss of Taste or Smell
  • Sore Throat
  • Congestion or Runny Nose
  • Nausea or Vomiting
  • Diarrhea

At this time, it seems that symptoms of COVID-19 may appear anytime between 2-14 days after exposure.

New variants may have different symptoms.

To date, cases have been linked with recent travel to areas where there have been documented outbreaks, through community spread, or direct contact with those who have recently traveled there. If your community has experienced community spread, your risk of contracting the virus is increased.
