COVID 19: 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. Testing is a good idea. My understanding -in South Africa, one contacts a medical provider for eval & to decide if COVID 19 testing is indicated. In US, policies vary by state.
