      • 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 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.
