Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, fatigue, body aches, headaches, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion, and nausea. If you suspect you may have COVID-19, or were exposed to someone who tested positive, protect others by isolating and taking a COVID test. Many area retail pharmacies offer fast testing, and some are available at no cost.
