Most people who get the illness will have mild flu-like symptoms. People who are elderly or have severe underlying chronic health conditions will have more serious symptoms and may need to be hospitalized.
The primary symptoms of coronavirus include a fever, cough and difficulty breathing. If you experience those symptoms, phone your doctor or health care provider. Symptoms typically begin 2-14 days after exposure to the disease.
Don’t call 911 or go directly to an emergency room unless the situation is life-threatening.
