High risk COVID19: The medications you probably take for your spondyloarthritis would place you at higher risk for the current COVID19 epidemic. Your symptoms suggest the need for immediate testing. Please wear a mask and call ahead for your doctor, ER, or designated hospital. Your going to be ok, but Please practice distancing as if you are contagious until you are tested.
