Justin takes Home COVID-19 test!

After having a fever of 101.2 and muscle aches, I felt like I should take a COVID test. My husband and I isolate ourselves as much as possible. I didn't think I had COVID, only because my husband and I isolate and don't really go out a lot. COVID has been responsible for over 180 thousand deaths in Maryland, 12.2 million deaths in the United States, and over 55.6 million deaths all over the world. BE CAREFUL OUT THERE. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19: 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 Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately: Trouble breathing Persistent pain or pressure in the chest New confusion Inability to wake or stay awake Bluish lips or face Call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.
