It depends on the virus, but according to the CDC, common signs include:
Symptoms can appear two to 14 days after exposure to the virus. Some cases of COVID-19 have an illness no different than the influenza (flu) and in more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. If you are experiencing severe symptoms please call 911.
The CDC has issued guidance to healthcare providers for determining which patients likely need testing. Providers will use their judgment of a patient’s symptoms, travel history and risk factors to evaluate a patient.
COVID-19 testing is reserved for those with severe symptoms and no alternative diagnosis like influenza. Patients who have recently traveled to an epidemic country or had prolonged exposure with a known coronavirus patient, who are now having symptoms may also be considered for testing.
