Call your doctor or the Health Department if you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and have developed a fever or other symptoms, such as a cough or difficulty breathing.

Your doctor or the health department will ask questions to decide whether you need to be tested. Please keep in mind that there is no treatment for COVID-19 and if you are not feeling well, you should isolate and care for yourself at home.

Consult your health care provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning.
