FAQs

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
The primary symptom is a fever, and the Centers for Disease Control advise patients to contact their doctor if they have a fever in combination with a persistent cough, shortness of breath, headache, gastro-intestinal issues, and flu-like body aches and fatigue. Other symptoms include a loss of taste or smell, and sore throat. Symptoms appear within 2 to 14 days of exposure, with the median onset time being 5 days according to one study. The cough appears to be the main differentiator between this and influenza, and many people report mild symptoms. It's now believed that a large percentage of positive cases — perhaps 40 percent — may be relatively or completely asymptomatic. Learn more from the CDC.

Where can I be tested in San Francisco?
There are now many walk-up testing sites in San Francisco, as well as those requiring appointments, and private healthcare providers provide tests as well. Other free testing sites, many of which require appointments, can be found in other Bay Area counties.

*All hospitalization numbers now include PUIs. PUI stands for Patient Under Investigation, and several counties already roll these PUI totals into their COVID hospitalization data. While some of these patients turn up negative for COVID-19, we're including them now in hospital census numbers for San Francisco and Santa Clara counties in order to track case surges as they happen. They are not added to confirmed case totals until their test results arrive.
