Treat symptoms: The flu like symptoms that you are describing may be due to a number of viral causes, including COVID 19. Stay home, rest, drink fluids and treat fever with Tylenol. Contact your PCP to arrange COVID 19 testing. Use nasal saline rinses and discuss treatment for bacterial sinusitis with your PCP or with Healthtap during a virtual visit.
