COVID-19 Topics

What is considered a fever?

A temperature of 100.4 degrees (F) or higher is considered a fever for oral, under-the-tongue thermometers. That is the equivalent of 99.9 degrees (F) or higher for forehead thermometers, and 97.7 degrees (F) or higher for some thermal imaging scanners.

Common Symptoms of COVID-19

COVID-19 symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

  • Fever or chills

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle or body aches

  • Headache

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • Sore throat

  • Congestion or runny nose

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Diarrhea

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

  • Blush lips or face

Steps to Help Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

If you are sick or think you might have COVID-19, follow these steps below to care for yourself and to help protect other people.

  • Stay home except to get medical care

  • Separate yourself from other people

  • Monitor your symptoms

  • Call ahead before visiting your doctor

  • Continue to wear a face covering over your nose and mouth

  • Cover your coughs and sneezes

  • Wash your hands often, for at least 20 seconds

  • Avoid sharing personal household items

How are quarantine and isolation different?

Quarantine: Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others. Quarantine helps prevent the spread of disease that can occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without feeling symptoms. Students and employees in quarantine should stay home, separate themselves from others, monitor their health, and follow directions from their state or local health department.

Isolation: Isolation is used to separate people infected with the virus (those who are sick with COVID-19 and those with no symptoms) from people who are not infected. Students and employees who are in isolation should stay home until it is safe for them to be around others. In the home, anyone sick or infected should separate themselves from others by staying in a specific “sick room” or area and using a separate bathroom (if available).

How are quarantine and isolation similar?

Both quarantine and isolation:

  • involve separation of people to protect the public
  • help limit further spread of COVID-19
  • can be done voluntarily or be required by health authorities
