      • The CDC recommends that you stay home if you have mild symptoms. This will greatly reduce the risk of infecting others. There is no cure or prescription treatment for COVID-19.  Most people with respiratory illness are able to treat their mild symptoms at home with over the counter medicines. 
      • Most symptomatic people do not need a COVID-19 test-- they need to STAY ISOLATED. By leaving your home to get tested you will expose yourself & others -including HealthCare Workers- in the process of trying to get tested.  If you have fever, cough, and/or other MILD symptoms of respiratory illness- even if it is not COVID-19-- YOU SHOULD ISOLATE YOURSELF. Testing results-whether positive or negative- do not change the treatment plan that you will receive from your doctor. (Always call your medical provider prior to visiting their office if you have symptoms, or if you have questions regarding your illness. If you have an Emergency: Dial 911.)
