Symptoms

Know the symptoms of COVID-19

There are many ways COVID-19 can affect your health. These symptoms may appear 2-14 days after you have been around someone with COVID-19.

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Fever

  • Chills

  • Repeated shaking with chills

  • Muscle pain

  • Headache

  • Sore throat

  • Loss of ability to smell

Not everyone who has COVID-19 shows symptoms.

WHEN TO GET EMERGENCY MEDICAL HELP:
Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care right away:

  • Trouble breathing

  • Pain or pressure in the chest that does not stop

  • New confusion

  • Inability to wake or stay awake

  • Bluish lips or face

This list does not cover all possible symptoms. Please call your medical provider for any other symptoms that you are worried about.

Call 911 or call ahead to your local emergency facility and tell the operator that you need care for someone who has or may have COVID-19.

You can check your symptoms with the Coronavirus Symptom Checker from the Emory University School of Medicine.

If you have symptoms or think you might have COVID-19 it’s important to stay home and away from other people. Find out when you can go back to work and be around others again here.
