What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
Symptoms of COVID-19 may appear 2-14 days after exposure, range from mild to severe, and include:
Fever
Cough
Shortness of Breath
How does COVID-19 spread?

Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
Community-based interventions such as social distancing and creating employee plans to work remotely can help slow the spread of COVID-19.

CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
Face masks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of face masks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).


Travel information
If a person has recently traveled to a country with a sustained outbreak and has developed symptoms, they should call their doctor. Traveler information including returning from travel, canceling or postponing travel, air or cruise travel, and business travel can be found on the CDC website.
