We are still in the midst of flu season and now allergy season has sprung, too. With the simultaneous outbreak of novel coronavirus, COVID-19, the overlap of symptoms can cause a lot of fear and confusion.


Here’s how the symptoms differ:



According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, most people with COVID-19 have reported mild symptoms. Symptoms appear 2 to 14 days after exposure.* 

COVID-19 symptoms include: 

  • fever 
  • cough
  • shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

Older people and people of all ages with severe underlying health conditions — like heart disease, lung disease and diabetes, for example — seem to be at higher risk of developing serious COVID-19 illness.

If you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19 get medical attention immediately. Emergency warning signs include**:

  • difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • new confusion or inability to arouse
  • bluish lips or face

**This list is not all-inclusive. Please consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning.

If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms listed above, call your healthcare provider for medical advice. 

Please see the CHARTS for Symptoms.
