The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fatigue, sore throat, cough, or runny nose. Not all people have a fever with COVID-19.
Steps to take after COVID testing: including what to do if your test is positive according to the new CDC guidelines
Asymptomatic people (no fatigue, fever, sore throat, runny nose, or cough) exposed to COVID no longer need to quarantine unless they are in high-risk congregate settings but should wear a mask for 10 days and get tested at least five days after exposure.
The CDC is advising people with and without symptoms to test multiple times if they get a negative result on an at-home COVID-19 antigen test due to the possibility of false-negative results.
If you are symptomatic, test right away. If the result is positive isolate for 5 days and wear a mask for 10 days.
If you are symptomatic and home test negative, wear a mask, limit exposures, and repeat testing in 24 to 48 hours with either a PCR or a home test.
If you are exposed but have no symptoms, wear a mask and test on day 5. If a home test is negative, repeat a home test or get a PCR in 48 hours. Wear a mask in public for 10 days after your last exposure.
