Telephone consult: Can you access a telephone or virtual consult. Sounds more like sinusitis than covid BUT better get a proper check up with more questions and history :)

Evaluation: Please call your PCP and they may offer you a virtual consultation. Monitor your temperature, take Ibuprofen, drink fluids and rest. Use nasal saline rinses to reduce post nasal drip. Your shortness of breath may be related to your viral illness and possible COVID-19 infection.
