Do you have COVID-19 symptoms? 

Have you been exposed? Get tested.




People with COVID-19 can experience a range of symptoms. Most people have mild symptoms and are able to recover at home. Some may have severe symptoms that lead to hospitalization or death. If you feel sick, isolate yourself from others and get tested.  Door County Covid-19 Testing Sites

You may have COVID-19 if you have any of these symptoms:

  • Cough (new onset or worsening of chronic cough)
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell

Not everyone with COVID-19 has these symptoms. For many, symptoms are mild, with no fever. Some people may also experience fatigue or gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or abdominal pain. You can still spread the virus to others even if you have mild or no symptoms.
