Mayo Clinic

You’ve tested positive for COVID-19 but feel like you have a cold or flu. Dr. Melanie Swift says you should stay home for at least five days and isolate from others in your household during this time.

You might experience fever, chills, sore throat and muscle pain. Medications, like Paxlovid, are available for people with certain risk factors, so check with your doctor right away to see if you are eligible.
