Yes: I would advise screening due to your exposure. Fever is very commonly associated with COVID-19. Stay at home, rest, drink fluids and monitor your temperature. Arrange the testing which also may include a chest image with your PCP. Since your have been traveling, a pulmonary embolism is another possible cause of your shortness of breath.
