Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms or combinations of symptoms may have COVID-19:

  1. Cough
  2. Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  3. Or at least two of these symptoms:
  4. Fever
  5. Chills
  6. Repeated shaking with chills
  7. Muscle pain
While there is no current vaccine to prevent infection with 2019-nCoV, as with other respiratory-transmitted diseases, there are certain preventative measures to help stop the spread of respiratory viruses, including:
  1. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  3. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  4. Stay home when you are sick.
  5. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
