People with COVID-19 symptoms have had a wide range of symptoms. These symptoms can range from mild to severe. Some of the cases the ACDOH staff have talked to could not believe they tested positive for COVID-19 since they had no symptoms at all. The ACDOH is asking residents to continue to monitor themselves for symptoms, stay home from work or school, and call your healthcare provider if you do not see improvement in symptoms.
