If you have any symptoms or are at risk, it’s especially important to stay home and avoid in-person contact with others.

Coronavirus symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea/Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Chills
  • Muscle aches
  • Sore throat

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has more information about COVID-19 symptoms.

You may have been exposed to COVID-19 if:

  • you have traveled to an affected country within the last 14 days
  • you have been in close contact with a person confirmed to have COVID-19

Some people are more likely to get very sick from COVID-19, including:

  • people over 65 years old
  • people with compromised immune systems
  • people with serious chronic medical conditions

If you or someone you’re close to is at higher risk, avoid going out and have supplies available to minimize the need for errands.

Stay in contact over the phone or online with loved ones and caregivers. Review additional guidance for high risk individuals (pdf).
