If you have symptoms or if you believe you have COVID-19 call your health care provider. People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms. This may include: a cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat and new loss of taste or smell. This is not a full list. If you have any other symptoms that are severe or concern you, call your provider. Your provider may be able to check in with you by phone or video chat. Contact your provider to see if this option is available. Telehealth for COVID-19 is covered in full at no cost to you.
If your symptoms are mild, call your PCP before you go to the emergency room (ER) or urgent care. Most people who are mildly ill with COVID-19 are able to recover at home. Your close contacts should stay home as well. Do not visit public areas. Follow the CDC’s guidance for separating yourself from others.
If your symptoms get worse, call your health care or urgent care provider before you visit them. Follow any rules that the health care facility has in place. This will help the office staff protect themselves and other patients.
In an emergency, call 911.
