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.
