Isolate and get tested. Talk to your healthcare provider right away to determine if you are a good candidate for antiviral treatment, even if your symptoms are mild right now.

If you suspect you have COVID-19, follow these steps to prevent the spread of disease: 

Stay home except to get medical care.

People who have mild cases of COVID-19 can isolate at home. Don’t leave unless you need medical care. Don’t go to work, school, or public areas. Avoid public transportation, ridesharing, or taxis.

Separate yourself from other people in your home.

Stay in a specific room and away from other people and animals in your home. Use a separate bathroom, if available.

Monitor your symptoms.

Seek prompt medical attention if your illness gets worse. Symptoms can include:

  • Cough.
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.
  • Fever, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell.

Call ahead before you visit your doctor or an emergency room.

If you have a medical appointment, call the healthcare provider and tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the healthcare provider take steps to prevent exposure to other people. View our infographic
