Should an individual experience any of the following symptoms, they should reach out to their primary care physician as soon as they become symptomatic:

– Congestion/runny nose
– Cough
– Diarrhea
– Fatigue
– Fever or chills
– Headache
– Muscle/body aches
– Nausea or vomiting
– New loss of taste or smell
– Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing

If an individual does not have a Primary Care Provider, they should call 2-1-1, where LA County can assist them in finding a provider.

If an individual has ANY symptoms, they are required to stay home until symptoms resolve even if they have a negative COVID test result. Additionally, individuals must have had no fever for at least 24 hours without the use of medicine that reduces fever.

This list does not include all possible symptoms. Please visit the CDC website for the latest information about symptoms.
