Three types of COVID-19 presentations & related follow up:
1) Mild symptoms – may look and feel like the common cold and/or allergies.
** Call your PCP for guidance. They will recommend #coronavirus testing.
** If you do not have a PCP, call 211.
2) Symptoms mimic the flu – you are going to feel pretty bad, but not like death.
** Again, call your PCP for guidance and/or present to the ED. It is very hard to differentiate this presentation from Type 3 or “close to death”.
3) Close to death – you are sick as shit. Fevers, cough, cannot breath, bodyaches.
** Call 911 and/or get to the hospital as soon as possible. It could save your life.
