CDC revises COVID-19 symptoms list

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently revised its list of COVID-19 symptoms, as health officials learn more about the virus.

Rebecca Burns, health officer at Branch-Hillsdale-St. Joseph Community Health Agency, said one of the misconceptions about COVID-19 is that if people don’t have a fever, they don’t have the virus.

She said a lot of people who have tested positive never had a fever. Burns added that the CDC recently changed the order of key symptoms, placing fever below a loss of taste and smell.

As of Thursday, there were four new cases of COVID- 19 reported in St. Joseph County, bringing the total number of cases since March to 623, with 11 deaths. Branch County reported nine new cases Thursday for a cumulative total of 509 general public cases and four deaths.
