“If you’re wondering what to do when you are at home and you get some of the symptoms, call your family physician,” said the Mayor. “He or she will determine whether or not you need to go to a testing center for testing.”

In conclusion, the Mayor said: “Staying at home and staying away from each other is the best way for us to get through this.”
