Symptoms of COVID-19 include a measured fever of 100.4 (F) or higher and lower respiratory symptoms like coughing or shortness of breath.
If the symptoms you develop during your quarantine are mild and you normally would not seek healthcare, stay home for:
• 10 days from the onset of symptoms OR
• 72 hours after fever is gone without the use of medication AND there has been a significant improvement in symptoms
• WHICHEVER IS LONGER.
If you have shortness of breath and need to call 911, notify the dispatch personnel that you may have been exposed to COVID-19 while traveling. If possible, put on a facemask before emergency medical services arrive. If you have questions, contact your local county health department or KDHE at 877-427-7317.
