Look for these COVID-19 Symptoms


According to the CDC, people with COVID-19 can have a wide range of symptoms 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:


  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell


This list is not all inclusive. Other less common symptoms have been reported, including nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.




If you think you or someone you know has COVID-19 symptoms, call your doctor about your symptoms and getting tested.


Important: Get medical attention immediately if you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19 like trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in your chest, or bluish lips or face.
