CDC protocol says that if you have NOT been confirmed with COVID within the last 90 days, you do NOT have to stay home unless you develop symptoms. But, you should get tested on or after August 5 even if you have not developed symptoms. You should also wear a high quality mask around others through August 9.Needless to say, if you feel a little under the weather, get tested!
Possible symptoms 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. Symptoms may change with new Covid-19 variants and can vary depending on vaccination status. CDC will continue to update this list as we learn more about Covid-19. Older people and those with underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes are at higher risk for getting very sick from COVID-19.You can find the latest CDC protocol at
