Do you know how to tell if you have COVID-19?
It can be hard to tell the difference between symptoms of COVID-19 and symptoms of other illnesses, such as the flu (influenza) or a common cold.1
The only way to confirm whether you have COVID-19 is to get tested.
Test positive? Talk to your doctor about treatment options.
Do you know who is at risk for severe COVID-19?
While older adults are at greater risk of becoming severely ill from COVID-19, people of any age, with an underlying condition, can progress to severe COVID-19 as well. Some of these conditions include2:
Chronic kidney disease
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
Your biggest risk factor for severe COVID-19 may be waiting too long to get tested.
