Common Questions

Symptoms can appear between two and 14 days from exposure to the coronavirus. The common symptoms are coughing, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, or at least two of the following symptoms: fever, chills, repeated shaking with chills, headache, sore throat, muscle pain, loss of taste or smell. Individuals may also experience body aches, runny nose or diarrhea. Infected people may also be asymptomatic or display no symptoms. Children may have similar symptoms as adults. The data about the virus is still evolving, so symptoms may vary from person to person. Contact your health care provider and let them know you suspect you may have the virus. Call 9-1-1 if you have difficulty breathing or need emergency medical assistance.

The COVID-19 virus is spread through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or speaks. A non-infected person can become infected when these droplets land on mouths or noses, or are inhaled, or by touching an infected surface and then touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. It’s important to wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds and practice social distancing by staying at least six feet away from another person to minimize contact with droplets.

Follow the guidelines from your healthcare provider. If your symptoms are not severe, stay home and self-monitor your symptoms. Separate yourself from other people and animals inside your home to prevent spreading the virus. Use a separate bathroom from other people in your home if possible. If you feel better, continue to stay home until your healthcare provider says it’s OK to end home isolation. If your symptoms worsen, contact your healthcare provider. In case of a medical emergency, call 9-1-1 and let them know you have COVID-19. Be sure to put on a face mask before emergency medical services arrive.

The CDC has advised that people may have the virus and not know it because some individuals may be asymptomatic. Nonsurgical face masks and cloth face coverings can help prevent an asymptomatic individual from spreading the virus unknowingly. Surgical masks and N-95 masks are effective in preventing respiratory droplets. The CDC has advised that these critical supplies should be reserved for healthcare workers and medical first responders.

Starting April 20, any person conducting a business transaction on Oahu must wear a nonsurgical face mask. The new mask requirement applies to riders and drivers of TheBus and TheHandi-Van. Exemptions include, due to security issues, transactions occurring inside financial institutions as well as at automated teller machines (ATMs). It will also not apply to people with asthma or other respiratory medical problems that would make it difficult for them to breathe.

Not everyone needs to be tested with COVID-19. Please consult with your healthcare provider if you think you may have been exposed to the virus or you suspect you have the virus. Testing sites and times vary greatly. Check out our Coronavirus Resources page for the latest updates, including announcements on testing.
