If You Become Sick

Stay home

Most people with COVID-19 have mild symptoms and can isolate at home during their illness.

  • Do not go to work or school and do not use public transportation
  • Stay in a separate room or area in your home and away from other people
  • Use a separate bathroom

Call ahead before seeing a doctor

  • If you are at higher risk of complications from COVID-19 (e.g. elderly, those with underlying medical conditions), call your healthcare provider.
  • If you are experiencing symptoms and think you may need medical care, call your healthcare provider and tell them that you may have COVID-19. This will help them take steps to keep other people from getting infected or exposed.
