COVID-19 question: Even with recent travel, I can't say that your symptoms are consistent with COVID-19, particularly if you have not had a fever. Best practice... follow the recommendations of the local health department in your area. Describe your symptoms and recent travel history. DO NOT GO to the doctor or the hospital unless directed or unless having trouble breathing.
