If you have recently traveled, especially to a place with widespread community transmission of COVID-19, you should monitor your symptoms (fever, cough, tiredness, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, or sore throat) for 14 days following your return and report to your healthcare provider if you develop symptoms.
