4th fuels surge?

“These are anything but normal times, and a typical Fourth of July celebration could further spread the virus, endanger lives, overwhelm our health system, and undo the progress made toward reopening sectors of our economy,” read a joint statement from the leaders of the American Medical Association, the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, and the National Association of County and City Health Officials.

How long is it between when a person is exposed to the virus and when they start showing symptoms? People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear two to 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; and diarrhea.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and want to get tested, call your healthcare provider first to see which test they would recommend (PCR or Antibody). A list of testing sites can be found on the YCCHS website, below the COVID-19 dashboard.
