COVID 19 screening: Please obtain a screening test for both flu and COVID 19. Take Tylenol for fever and pain, rest, drink fluids and self isolate.
Continue isolation until well, without any symptoms and until your test is negative. Avoid contact with the elderly.
Have a flu vaccine, and please follow up with your doctor if worsening respiratory condition occurs.
