Please contact your doctor by phone for further evaluation and mechanism for testing in your area.
Wear a mask, stay away from others, practice hand hygiene. Be sure to get tested, if you get symptoms. If you develop breathing difficulty, go to the nearest hospital, immediately.
Wish you good health.
