  • According to CDC, patients with confirmed COVID-19 have had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of:
    • fever
    • cough
    • shortness of breath
  • Some patients have had other symptoms including muscle aches, headache, sore throat, or diarrhea.
  • Based on what has been seen previously as the incubation period of other coronaviruses, CDC believes that symptoms of COVID-19 may appear two to 14 days after exposure.
  • Symptoms are similar to other respiratory illnesses that are circulating, such as influenza, so experiencing these symptoms alone does not necessarily mean you need to be tested for COVID-19. Additional criteria will help your health care provider decide if you should be tested, such as:
    • If you have history of recent travel (within past 14 days) from an affected geographic area. Affected geographic areas can be found at CDC Coronavirus Disease 2019 Information for Travel.
    • If you had close contact with any person who is a lab-confirmed patient within the past 14 days of symptom onset.
    • If you are hospitalized with something like acute respiratory illness or pneumonia without another explanation (e.g., influenza).
