Yes: Check locally for policies and testing sites. Testing for influenza and COVID 19 screening is indicated. Drink fluids and rest. Monitor and treat fever with Tylenol. Watch for difficulty breathing and then please see the Emergency room.

Yes, get tested: It is important that exactly people like you get tested, so that we can learn of people with just minor "cold symptoms " like yours may actually have a mild case of Covid19. It also let's you know whether you need to keep a full quarantine. You are absolutely correct that it may be just a cold, but combine the fact you were exposed with mild symptoms-that equals get tested!

See below: Covid-19: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html Contact your doctor/local hospital, by phone for evaluation and testing in your area. Wear a mask, stay away from others, practice hand hygiene. If you develop breathing difficulty, go to the nearest hospital, immediately. Get Covid vaccine. Wish you good health.
