COVID test?: A COVID screening test is recommended. If the test is negative, other causes such as influenza should be considered. Her mucus production may be related to asthma, bronchitis, COPD. Use nasal saline rinses to reduce post nasal drip. If the inhaler relieves the cough, please continue the inhaler as directed. A virtual appointment with HT or with her PCP is suggested. Encourage fluids and rest.
