Frequently Asked Question:
What should I do if I think I’ve been exposed to the coronavirus?
DON’T go straight to the doctor, ER, or walk-in clinic. You could make others sick. Instead, call your doctor if:
- You think you’ve been exposed to the coronavirus
- You’ve been around someone who is sick with COVID-19
- You have a fever, cough, or trouble breathing
Your doctor will decide if you need testing or if you can care for yourself at home (self-quarantine).
If you have mild symptoms, call your doctor early if you are over 60 or have serious or long-term health problems like heart disease, diabetes, or lung problems. Your risk of serious complications from COVID-19 is much higher.
