Symptoms of COVID-19 versus common cold and flu

People can protect themselves against COVID-19 by washing their hands often, covering their mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing and frequently cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces. They should also avoid close contact and stay at least 6 feet away from others.

People should consult their medical provider for any symptoms that are severe or concerning.
