COVID Symptoms Can Mimic Cold and Flu Symptoms

Stay home if you do not feel well. Not everyone who gets COVID is critically ill, especially if vaccinated. You may think you have a typical Fall cold or allergies, but you may have mild symptoms from COVID and you could be passing it on to others who could become seriously ill.
COVID symptoms mimic typical cold and flu symptoms so do not assume you do not have COVID. Instead, get tested for COVID because this is the only way to know for sure.
