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.

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
