SYMPTOMS: COMPARING THE COLD, FLU AND COVID-19 

This year, with COVID-19 spiking throughout Southern Colorado, we realize that first sniffle or little cough might make you wonder if you have a cold, the flu, COVID-19, or something else entirely.

Below is a convenient chart to help you determine if you’re sick and – if so – identify the most likely cause. While this chart is an excellent reference tool, please contact us if you’re concerned about your health or that of a loved one. Spanish Peaks Regional Health Center is here to help you evaluate if you’re sick and what the best treatment options are for you. Don't forget, if you haven't gotten your flu shot, there's still time - just give us a call at 719-738-4590 to set up your appointment. 

Your symptoms may vary. *Information is still evolving. **Allergies, colds and flu can all trigger asthma, which can lead to shortness of breath. COVID-19 is the only one associated with shortness of breath on its own. Sources: Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
