Feeling sick?
  • If you have mild symptoms and are worried that you might have COVID-19, call your primary care physician or healthcare provider instead of going to a clinic or doctor's office without an appointment to ensure you aren't potentially exposing others to the virus.

  • If you have severe breathing problems, seek medical attention or call 911 immediately and let the person you speak with know that you have respiratory problems and need to be isolated and seen right away.

  • If you believe you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, you should contact your primary care physician or healthcare provider for guidance.
