  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose

Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • New confusion
  • Inability to wake or stay awake
  • Bluish lips or face

Call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.

Did you know? You should still get vaccinated for COVID-19 even if you have been sick with it before. Reinfection with the virus is possible, and you could get severely ill from COVID-19. Experts aren’t sure how long someone is protected from getting sick again after recovering. Both natural immunity and immunity from a vaccine are important aspects of COVID-19 that experts are trying to learn more about. CDC will keep you informed as new evidence becomes available.
