If you have symptoms of respiratory illness (e.g., fever, cough and/or shortness of breath), answer the following questions:
1. Have you recently traveled outside the country? Current countries at high risk include all Asian countries, Italy, and Iran.
2. Have you been in close contact with anyone known or suspected to have the COVID-19 coronavirus illness? Close contact is defined as within 6 feet for 3 minutes or more.
If you answered yes to one or both of these questions and have respiratory symptoms:
Stay home and call your primary care physician to discuss next steps.
If you believe your symptoms are life threatening, go to the nearest hospital emergency department. We recommended that you call the emergency department immediately so the staff can provide you with arrival instructions.
If you do not have respiratory illness symptoms, please refer to the CDC’s guidance to help with risk assessment and management of people with potential exposures to COVID-19
