IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider for medical advice.

Do not walk into a healthcare facility, urgent care clinic, or hospital before calling. Discuss your symptoms with your doctor. If your doctor believes that you need to be tested for COVID-19, your doctor should call YOUR County Health Department Communicable Disease program to arrange for you to be assessed.  

The Centers for Disease Control has listed easy to understand guidelines: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/steps-when-sick.html
