Flu like symptoms: If you have flu like symptoms including fever, you may have influenza, another viral illness or symptoms related to COVID-19. If you have not had travel to a high risk area or contact with a person with COVID-19, monitor your temperature, rest, stay home and drink fluids. Consider a virtual consultation with HealthTap which may be booked online. If you worsen, please see your PCP.
