What should I do if I think that I (or someone in my family) might have COVID-19?

The Florida Department of Health suggests the following:

  1. Contact your local County Health Department.
  2. Contact a health-care provider as soon as possible. Call ahead and tell them before you visit that you think you may have COVID-19 so they can take precautions to prevent exposing other people.
  3. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
  4. If you have a surgical mask, wear it during close contact with other people.
  5. Remember that very few respiratory infections will be COVID-19.
  6. Review your symptoms and travel history with your physician.
