- Symptoms of COVID-19 Include:
- What Do I Do if I Have These Symptoms?
- What To Do if You Get Sick?
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses common throughout the world, some causing illness in people and others among animals. COVID-19 is a new coronavirus that can cause mild to severe illness.
COVID-19 is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus was first identified during an outbreak in China and has since spread to many other countries, including the United States. Multiple variants of the virus that causes COVID-19 have been documented in the United States and globally during this pandemic.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are actively responding to both national and global outbreaks. The Florida Department of Health is carefully monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 in Florida and the United States.
Anyone can have mild to severe symptoms. People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness.
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
Please note that this list does NOT include all possible symptoms.
- Trouble breathing
- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- New confusion or inability to arouse
- Bluish lips or face
*Speak with your medical provider for any other server symptoms that specifically concern you and/or your family.
If you have a fever, cough, or other symptoms, you might have COVID-19. Most people have mild illness and are able to recover at home. If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, contact your healthcare provider immediately.
- Keep track of your symptoms.
- If you have an emergency warning sign (including trouble breathing), get medical attention right away.
Your healthcare provider will work with public health and CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19. We do not provide testing for COVID-19.

If you get sick with a fever (100.4°F/38°C or higher), cough, or have trouble breathing:

If you need to seek medical care for other reasons, such as dialysis, call ahead to your doctor and tell them about your recent travel to an area with widespread or ongoing community spread of COVID-19.
