COUNTY AND STATE RESOURCES:


What should I do if I have symptoms and think I may have been exposed to novel coronavirus?  

Most people with respiratory infections like colds, the flu, and coronavirus disease (COVID-19) will have mild illness and can get better with appropriate home care and without the need to see a provider. People who are elderly, pregnant, or have a weak immune system, or other medical problems, are at higher risk of more serious illness or complications. The County recommends that you monitor your symptoms closely and seek medical care early if your symptoms worsen. 

If you are having difficulty breathing or keeping fluids down, go to an emergency room or call 911. Otherwise, it is better to call your doctor before going in to seek care. Have non-emergency questions, dial 2-1-1 to speak with the Los Angeles County information center.

You should also call a doctor if you have had close contact with a person who has COVID-19.
