Self-isolate: If you have Covid, you need to self-isolate. Quarantine yourself. Drink lots of fluids, esp electrolyte solutions, rest, Take Acetaminophen for fever/pain and eat a bland diet (Bananas/Rice/Apples/Toast). See a Dr for worsening difficulty breathing, blue lips/face, confusion/lethargy, and persistent chest pain. Testing may be necessary to return to work, but otherwise does not change treatment.

URI: Rest, hydrate, quarantine & eat healthfully. Consider use of acetaminophen, saline for nasal irrigation, decongestant or cough syrup. Get urgent care for difficulty breathing, blue lips, persistent chest pain/ pressure or new onset confusion. If you live in the US- COVID testing policies differ by state & can be checked through your local or state medical society.

Headache: May be viral or bacterial infection with sinus involvement, as indicated by worsening when you bend forward. That infection may be Covid-19, but could as easily be from bacterial cause. Call your Physician or report to Urgent Care (not ER) to see if lab tests would be helpful in making a diagnosis.
