Anyone can have mild to severe symptoms. Older adults and individuals of any age with underlying medical conditions, such as lung disease, seem to be at higher risk for developing severe complications from COVID-19.
These symptoms, or combinations of symptoms, generally appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus and may prompt you to suspect you have COVID-19:
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Fever or chills
- Muscle or body aches
- Congestion or sore throat
- New loss of taste or smell
- Nausea or vomiting
This list is not all inclusive. Please consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are new, severe, or concerning to you.
