But those tests, which rely on a nasal swap, throat swab or saliva, “are run in a lab so it may take days to come back, and a patient may get infected during that time,” he said. That is the rub with PCR tests. Test too early, and a person’s chances of being infected after the test increase. Test too late, and the results may not be ready by departure time.

Some people are also thought to exhibit gastrointestinal signs like diarrhea, body aches, and upper respiratory symptoms like congestion. Keep yourself healthy by washing your hands regularly and staying inside.
