Signs and symptoms of COVID-19 may appear two to 14 days after exposure and can range from mild to severe, including fever, cough and shortness of breath.

If it’s determined that curbside collection is appropriate following a phone screening, an appointment will be scheduled.

Carris Health is requesting people not arrive at a curbside collection location without an appointment.
