What to Do If You Have Symptoms of COVID-19

In Maryland and if you are young and otherwise healthy, the guidelines are simple.

Older patients and individuals who have severe underlying medical conditions or are immunocompromised should contact their healthcare provider early, even if their illness is mild. If you have severe symptoms, such as persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion or inability to arouse, or bluish lips of face, contact your healthcare provider or emergency room and seek care immediately. --CDC
