Some people never feel sick or notice any symptoms, even though they’re infected and can still spread it to other people.
For mild symptoms, like a slight cough or a mild rash, health experts say you may not need to rush to the emergency room. They recommend self-isolating and monitoring your symptoms to see if they become more severe.
Anyone experiencing difficulty breathing or pain or pressure in the chest should seek immediate emergency medical care.
