What to do if you feel sick

Follow these steps to take care of yourself and avoid spreading the virus. 

  • Follow the OHIO COVID-19 Protocol for symptomatic individuals. This will include getting tested for COVID-19 via a health care provider.

  • If you take an antigen COVID-19 self-test and it is positive, report the test result by submitting a COVID-19 Incident Report. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and get a negative result on an antigen test, you still must follow the protocol and get tested via a health care provider because antigen tests are prone to false negatives.

  • To prevent the spread of disease to others, follow isolation instructions

If you are experiencing acute symptoms such as shortness of breath, dizziness, decreased awareness, difficulty staying awake, or bluish lips or face, call 911.
