Low risk: These are mild symptoms associated with a cold. If you experience fever, chills, trouble breathing, please see your physician. If you have no risk of exposure and have mild cold symptoms, your risk for complications from COVID=19 are low. Consider a virtual appointment if you have worsening symptoms. Nasal saline rinses and over the counter treatments may help.
