What is Coronavirus? Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats. COVID-19 is a novel or new coronavirus believed to have originated in China in 2019.
What are the symptoms and how does it spread? Reported illnesses range from mild to severe, including death. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure and be similar to influenza, including fever, cough and shortness of breath. Both coronavirus and influenza are spread by close contact between people and droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
Can I get tested? If you think you have been exposed to COVID19 and develop these symptoms, you should call your healthcare provider for medical advice. If you are unable to be seen by a healthcare professional, your insurance carrier may be able to provide telehealth services to evaluate you. Contact your insurance carrier for information and availability.
If a healthcare provider believes you should be tested, that person will coordinate the testing process. It is important that if you need to visit your doctor, and emergency room, or urgent care setting, call ahead so that the healthcare center can take steps to keep other people from getting infected or exposed.
