What to do if you feel sick

Stay home
Most people with COVID-19 have mild to moderate symptoms
and can recover at home. Rest up and prevent germs from
spreading by staying home and away from others for 14 days.

Get checked and cared for at home
For more mild symptoms, keep yourself and others safe by getting
medical care from the comfort of home. If you need help, use our
free COVID-19 risk assessment to learn about the care you need.

Call ahead for in-person care
If you need in-person care for severe respiratory symptoms,
call before you arrive at the doctor’s office, urgent care or
emergency room. This will help your healthcare providers
take steps to get you the right care and keep others from
being exposed.
