Coronavirus symptoms, testing
According to the CDC, reported illnesses from COVID-19 have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death.
Fever, cough and shortness of breath might appear 2 to 14 days after you’ve been exposed to the virus.
If you think you’ve been exposed to the coronavirus and develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your primary healthcare provider immediately for guidance, including whether you should be tested.
Preventing the spread
There is currently neither a vaccine nor an approved treatment for the new, or novel, coronavirus. While many people might only get mild symptoms, older adults and those who already have medical issues can end up with more serious complications. There’s concern that a fast spread of the virus could overwhelm the health system to provide care, including the need for respirators in serious cases.
With further spread of the virus and disruptions to everyday life expected, officials remind residents to wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
You should also cover coughs and sneezes with your elbow (not your hands), clean surfaces that are frequently touched (such as countertops, light switches and phones), and stay home if you are sick.
People are also asked not to attend large gatherings and to practice “social distancing.” It’s best to keep six feet apart from other people you don’t live with.
