What are the symptoms for COVID-19?
Patients with COVID-19 have reported mild to severe respiratory illness, including the following symptoms:
- Shortness of breath
Some patients may not report fever, especially the very young, elderly, immunosuppressed, and people taking certain fever-lowering medications. Employers would be wise to be particularly sensitive to requests from employees whose health is vulnerable, including employees with immunodeficiencies and those who are older or pregnant.
