From the Centers for Disease Control (September 1, 2020)
COVID-19 affects different people in different ways. Infected people have had a wide range of symptoms reported – from mild symptoms to severe illness.
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms MAY have COVID-19: If your child has any of these in the morning, do not send them to school (employees, do NOT report to work) and contact the nurse or your principal/supervisor. If guidance is updated by the CDC or Department of Health, we will provide a new symptom list and will update our reopening plan. Thank you!
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:
- Trouble breathing
- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- New confusion
- Inability to wake or stay awake
- Bluish lips or face
- Call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.
