According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the most common symptoms are a fever, dry cough, and tiredness. Some people have reported a runny nose, sore throat, diarrhea, or even losing their sense of smell. Many people with mild illness can recover at home, and don’t need to seek medical care. However, the elderly and individuals with underlying medical conditions are at greater risk for severe illness. If your symptoms are not severe enough to need medical treatment, stay home, rest.

If you develop a worsening fever, cough, and difficulty breathing you should seek medical care by calling your local health department or healthcare provider. They will help you decide if you need an appointment, and help you plan a way to enter a clinic in a way that avoids infecting others. If you have significant trouble breathing, or feel faint, or are a parent of a child who gets bluish color of the skin around the mouth should promptly call and arrange for medical evaluation or call 911.
