COVID concerns: These may or may not be symptoms of COVID 19. The only way to know if it is COVID 19 for sure is through testing. 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 or face, marked persistent chest pain/ pressure or new onset confusion.
