Yes: In order to come to a firm opinion who should have a proper evaluation which can be done via telemedicine. Based on what I read alone it seems like you should be tested for COVID 19 .

COVID 19.: Getting tested makes good clinical sense. COVID 19 Sx's may include fever, cough, feeling tired, shortness of breath, muscle aches, headache, sore throat, chills, chest pain, nasal congestion, loss of taste or smell, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. Get urgent care for difficulty breathing, blue lips, persistent chest pain/ pressure or new onset confusion.
