The weather’s getting colder, and you know what that means? We’re sick more often! 🤧 It can be tricky to figure out if you’ve got a cold, flu, and COVID-19 since symptoms overlap. A doctor can help, and testing might be necessary to confirm COVID-19. 

If you’re feeling sick, here are a few tips: 

1️⃣  Isolate: Stay away from others to stop any spread. 

2️⃣  Monitor: Watch how you're feeling and get help if you feel worse. 

3️⃣  Test: Consider getting tested for COVID-19 to confirm or rule out infection. 

4️⃣  Ask: Not sure? Ask your doctor for guidance. 

Stay cozy, stay safe, and keep those germs under control!
