Flu, Covid-19, RSV: Tis the start of ‘virus’ season…

What is the difference between Influenza (Flu) and COVID-19?  Both are contagious respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses. COVID-19 seems to spread more easily – and can cause more severe illness in some people – than flu.  Compared to people with flu, people infected with COVID-19 may take longer to show symptoms and may be contagious for longer periods of time.

Note: If you become sick: Stay home. Write down symptoms. See a doctor. Get tested.    https://www.cdc.gov/flu/symptoms/flu-vs-covid19.htm
