Please continue to visit the Illinois Department of Public Health COVID-19 website as it is continually updated.
If you are sick and have respiratory symptoms, such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath, stay home unless you need medical attention. Remain in your home until you feel better and have no symptoms. Keep in mind there is no treatment for COVID-19 and people who are mildly ill can isolate at home. While at home, as much as possible, stay in a specific room and away from other people. If you need medical attention, contact your health care provider who will evaluate whether you can be cared for at home or need to be hospitalized. If you determine you need to go to the emergency room, call ahead and let them know you are coming so the medical team can take the proper precautions prior to you entering the facility.
Do I need to be tested?
Consider the following:
- Within the last 14 days, have you traveled to a country for which the CDC has issued a Level 2 or 3 travel designation?; (Currently China, Iran, South Korea, and most of Europe.)
- Have you had contact with any person who is showing symptoms for COVID- 19 within the last 14 days, OR with anyone with known COVID-19?; and
- Do you have any symptoms of a lower respiratory infection (e.g., cough, fever, or shortness of breath)?
If “Yes”, contact your healthcare provider for medical assessment.
