COVID 19: What was exposure like? Were you close to infected person – less than 2 meters? Were you both wearing masks? Did the person appear ill? Sneeze or cough near you? Interaction less than 10 minutes? In a crowded or poorly ventilated room? – Even if answer is “no” to many of these questions, a direct cough or sneeze can get infect you.

Please contact your doctor by phone for further evaluation and mechanism for testing in your area.
Wear a mask, stay away from others, practice hand hygiene. Be sure to get tested, if you get symptoms. If you develop breathing difficulty, go to the nearest hospital, immediately.
Wish you good health.
