Avoid contact: Stay home, avoid contact with others, rest and drink fluids. Monitor your temperature. If you experience worsening, please contact your physician. You may have influenza, a non COVID 19 respiratory infection, but COVID 19 is still possible with mild symptoms. After one week from the onset of symptoms, or after three days without fever, whichever is longer in duration, less risk.
