What should I do if I have symptoms of COVID-19?
  • Those who have recently traveled to any countries of high level transmission (China, Italy, Iran, South Korea as of March 11, 2020) and who have symptoms of respiratory illness and/or fever should contact their healthcare provider immediately. Call or email them before going in person. Note that travelers from these countries should undertake a 14-day quarantine upon return.
  • Individuals who have come into close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 should contact the DPH Epidemiology Line at (617) 983-6800.
  • Other persons experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should practice self-care and germ spread prevention: stay home, cover your cough, and contact your medical provider for guidance. (Call before you go in.)
