If you aren’t feeling well, how can you tell the difference?

Here are the common symptoms of allergies, the flu and coronavirus:

Allergies: Sneezing, itchy, red and watery eyes and a runny, stuffy nose

Flu: Fever, cough, muscle aches, fatigue, chills and sweats, congestion and sore throat

Coronavirus: Could take between two days and two weeks for symptoms to appear, but you'll see a fever, cough, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing.

“If they’ve been to an area affected by coronavirus, then we’ll track them for two weeks but then they’ll know that because they’ll be notified by the CDC,” said Don Brannen with the Greene County Health District.

High pollen counts are already showing up in the area due to a mild winter.
