What Should I Do if I Think I Have Coronavirus?
If you begin developing symptoms, contact your healthcare provider immediately.
If you need a doctor, call Baton Rouge General Physicians at (225) 763-4500. Do not go to your health care provider or hospital without calling first.
If you are sick with COVID-19 or suspect you are infected with the virus
stay at home except to get medical care.
The following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure:
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Repeated shaking with chills
- Muscle pain
- Sore throat
- New loss of taste or smell
If you do have symptoms, wear a facemask when you are around other people
(e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) or pets and before you enter a healthcare
provider’s office. This will help protect others from getting infected.
At home, isolate yourself in a separate room and use a separate bathroom
