The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says symptoms of COVID-19 may appear anywhere between two to 14 days after an individual is exposed to the virus.

According to the CDC, possible symptoms of COVID-19 include:

  • 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
  • Diarrhea

This list does not include all possible symptoms and will be updated as the CDC learns more information about COVID-19.

According to the CDC, anyone who contracts COVID-19 can experience symptoms that are mild, or severe - though older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like lung or heart disease seem to be at a higher risk for developing more serious complications from the virus.

More information on symptoms of the coronavirus and more can be found on the CDC website.
