COVID-19 Testing - 4 Symptoms to Watch For

There are four symptoms that are highly predictive of the virus:

  • fever or chills,
  • cough,
  • loss of sense of smell or taste, and
  • difficulty breathing.

If you have any of these symptoms, you should arrange to get tested right away. If you have one or two of any of the other symptoms, you can wait 24 hours. These symptoms include sore throat, loss of appetite, extreme fatigue, headache, body aches, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. If you feel the same or worse after 24 hours, then you should also get tested.

As always, if you are uncertain, contact your health provider or call 811.
