What are COVID-19 symptoms?
|Symptoms may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus. Consider getting tested if you have any of the following:|
|Fever of 100.4 degrees or higher||Fatigue||Diarrhea|
|Body Aches||Shortness of Breath||Headaches|
|Chills||Loss of Taste or Smell||Cough|

When should I take precautions or isolate?
CDC recommends that people who have been exposed still take precautions to protect others, such as masking around others for 10 days and getting tested five days after exposure.
Isolation occurs AFTER a person becomes sick or tests positive, regardless of vaccination status. A person with COVID-19 is required to stay home, not go to work, and avoid other people, staying isolated in their own bedroom and using their own bathroom as much as possible.
