What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
The most common symptoms tend to be fever, tiredness, and dry cough. These symptoms may be mild, but you might experience more serious symptoms like shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, chest pain/chest pressure, and/or loss of movement/speech. It can take 2 to 14 days for symptoms to become apparent, and you might not even show any symptoms at all.
Even if you and your family seem to be symptom-free, it’s still important for you all to limit and control your interactions, take the recommended precautions, and follow the guidance of your local health officials. If you or a loved one does experience any of the minor symptoms of COVID-19, then you should consider getting a test for it. If the symptoms are life-threatening or if you think they could be, then you must call 911.

What is the test for COVID-19?
Please remember that the protocol for COVID-19 testing is to evaluate your symptoms over the phone and then, if necessary, to provide a test at our clinic’s curbside or at your home.
Remember, if you do notice any of the minor symptoms of COVID-19 in yourself or a loved one, please stay home and call a medical provider like ours. If the symptoms are life-threatening or if you believe they could be, call 911. Also, please try to understand that clinics like ours are limited in our access to testing kits, so we must make sure these kits are available to patients who need them like hospitalized patients, healthcare workers, and patients with serious symptoms.
