3. Rest. Seriously, rest.
Whether or not Step 1 left you isolated for five days or not, your body needs rest to fight off sickness. Aside from giving your body the break it needs to fight against illnesses like COVID-19, the flu or even just a common cold, hunkering down for a bit decreases the likelihood that you’ll spread it to someone else.
4. Repeat as needed.
Still not on the mend? Because the outcome of your BinaxNOW Self Test may depend on the amount of time since exposure or how infectious you are at the time of the test, if COVID-19-like symptoms (i.e. cough, fatigue, loss of taste or smell) persist, it never hurts to test again.
And because it's important to stay hydrated as you recover, keep Pedialyte with you whether it’s from bed or getting back out and on the go.
We know. We're all ready to get out and enjoy this (always seemingly too short) last hurrah before winter. But before you go nuts in the Halloween section of the home goods store and bust out your cutest burgundy, forest green and burnt orange outfits, make sure you have your true fall essentials in place to combat the ugliness that is virus season.
