Most people infected with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) have mild to moderate cold and flu-like symptoms, including:
- Shortness of breath
- Recent loss of taste or smell

CDC’s COVID-19 symptoms page.
Some people, often those with other medical complications, may develop more severe respiratory illnesses, including pneumonia. Other people could be asymptomatic. This means they are infected with the novel coronavirus, but they feel fine and have no symptoms, so they may never know they are infected. Nonetheless, these asymptomatic patients can shed and spread the virus and infect others.
If you suspect you have COVID-19 or its symptoms, please call our COVID-19 Nurse Line at
800-926-8273 to discuss your symptoms
