Frequently Asked Questions
What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
COVID-19 symptoms are similar to those of other common diseases, but the virus affects each person differently. Below is a list of symptoms found in patients:
- Sore throat
- Body aches
- Shortness of breath
- Loss of taste or smell
If you experience more serious conditions, seek medical treatment immediately. More serious conditions include:
- Trouble breathing
- Lips or face turning blue
- Chest pains
- Unable to stay awake or wake
How long should I quarantine when coming into contact with someone with COVID-19?
If you have come into contact with someone who contracted COVID-19, the CDC recommends you quarantine for 14 days. Most people develop symptoms of the virus within 5 days, but each person is different.
We recommend getting tested 4 to 5 days after coming into contact so that quarantine is unnecessary for those without the virus.
How long does COVID-19 last?
COVID-19 affects everyone differently. Adults with mild symptoms usually recover in one to two weeks. However, recent studies have suggested that recovery will vary for each person, even for those with mild symptoms and do not require hospitalization.
What causes false negatives in COVID-19 testing?
Getting tested too early after coming into contact with someone with the virus can lead to a false negative. This is due to the body taking some time to produce antibodies against the virus. The COVID-19 false negatives rate is approximately 20%, but studies are still determining the proper rate of success.
Who is at risk of COVID-19?
People with underlying medical conditions and those over the age of 85 are the most at risk of serious illness from COVID-19.
