People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms ranging from mild to severe illness. COVID-19 most often causes respiratory symptoms that can feel like a cold, the flu, or pneumonia. Some people with COVID-19 have no symptoms. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, stay home away from others and get tested. For information on how to get a COVID-19 test, visit ph.lacounty.com/covidtests/how.
If you have any respiratory symptoms (cough, runny nose, sore throat) wear a well-fitting mask when you are around others indoors.
If you need help finding a doctor, call the Los Angeles County Information line 2-1-1, which is available 24/7.
