Staying healthy header

The key symptoms of coronavirus infection, known as Covid-19, are high fever, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing and a cough.

Patients also can see fatigue, chills, aches, loss of taste and smell, headache, sore throat, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea and runny nose or congestion, per the federal Centers for Disease Control.

The majority of patients have only mild symptoms.

Runny nose, sneezing, a headache or sore throat alone are not symptoms of COVID-19.

If you have a high fever and respiratory symptoms, call your doctor, telemedicine line, walk-in clinic, hospital or other healthcare provider in advance.

Share any recent encounters with someone who was sick and any other relevant information.

The Orange County Health Care Agency has a coronavirus referral line: (800) 564-8448.

The line is staffed Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
