New Symptoms That Could Mean You Have COVID-19
Several states including Michigan, Florida and Texas are reporting their highest rates of people testing positive for COVID-19. On Thursday, Michigan hit a new high in June with 353 new cases with 18 new deaths and Florida for example had 8,942 new cases a single day record and 39 new deaths. As a result, Florida just suspended alcohol consumption at all bars and Texas closed their bars as well.
So with this uptick of new daily counts it's important we know all the signs of COVID-19.
Some new signs of the virus were added by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) this week, this is the second time they've added symptoms.
People who contract the Coronavirus will start showing symptoms as early as 2 days and up to 14 days later after exposure.
Most of us know the original symptoms of FEVER over 100.5 degrees, Coughs and being winded with shortness of breath.
We can now add Diarrhea, nausea and even runny nose...which the last one a lot of people with allergies are already suffering from with everything in bloom in Western Michigan.
So let's look at the total list of symptoms so you're up to date on COVID-19... there a now at least a dozen signs of exposure.

This summer remember to practice social distancing and wear a mask indoors anytime you're around other people. That is becoming mandatory in a lot of states and Michigan will probably follow a long that line if the cases continue to increase.
