What happens if I develop symptoms consistent with COVID-19 while I am in quarantine?

Symptoms of COVID-19 include a measured fever of 100.4 (F) or higher and lower respiratory symptoms like coughing or shortness of breath. 

If the symptoms you develop during your 14-day quarantine are mild and you normally would not seek healthcare, stay home for:
• 10 days from the onset of symptoms OR
• 72 hours after fever is gone without the use of medication AND there has been a significant improvement in symptoms
• WHICHEVER IS LONGER. 

If you have shortness of breath and need to call 911, notify the dispatch personnel that you may have been exposed to COVID-19 while traveling. If possible, put on a facemask before emergency medical services arrive. If you have questions, contact your local county health department or KDHE at 877-427-7317.
