What do I do If I have these symptoms?

CDC recommends that anyone with signs or symptoms of COVID-19 get tested, regardless of vaccination status or prior infection. If you get tested because you have symptoms or were potentially exposed to the virus, you should stay away from others until test results are available and follow the advice of your healthcare provider or a public health professional.

Vaccination

The FDA has authorized COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson for emergency use in the United States. According to CDC, COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. After you’ve been fully vaccinated, you can return to doing some of the things that you had to stop doing due to the pandemic.

Preventive Measures

Since COVID-19 is primarily a transferable disease, it is our joint responsibility to control the spread. Below are some of the precautions suggested by the World Health Organization (WHO) that we should inculcate in our daily lives.
