COVID 19 Health and Safety
Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately: trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion, inability to wake or stay awake, bluish lips or face.

COVID-19 Testing and Next Steps for a Positive Test
Stay home if you are sick with any symptoms. Maintain social distancing, wear masks and wash hands frequently. If a known exposure has happened (less than six feet for more than 15 minutes during the course of a day), stay home for 14 days from the last contact. Testing is recommended if symptoms develop. Testing too soon will not give an accurate result and does not change the isolation period.
