CALL.  Doctor or Clinic or Health Hotline.  Don't go anywhere unless instructed.

Reality: take off the amount of time you are allowed to. Go back to work when your boss has that tone of voice telling you not to take more sick leave.

You aren't getting tested. Accept it.
You're boss doesn't trust you or your thermometer. Accept it.

Tfa is bullshiat. If you ain't dying you will get nothing from the medical industry atm. It is what it is I guess. They'll talk to you like your an asshole for being proactive about symptoms during a pandemic. If your fevers, like every illness with fevers you've ever had, come and go they'll tell you you can only get a test if you manage to be in line at the height of your fever.

Me, mine spiked to 102 overnight (testing closed) and went down to 100-101 during the day (too low for testing).

I'm not even frustrated for myself. I'm over it now (whatever it was) and have plenty of sick leave. It's just such a terrible system.

Flincher: Cough and sneeze all over the toilet paper rolls at your local Walmart?

Give a hug and kiss to old people at a retirement village?

Visit the Burn Wards?

This was my original headline:

What should we do if we think we have coronavirus.  You mean right after shaking Trump's hand and giving him a big hug?

And yet they left my fun punchline.  Oh well.

Apparently, die drowning in your own blood.  At least, that's what it looks like in my rural Alaskan town with one ventilator, a tribal clinic and poor flight conditions.  If anyone here needs an emergency room or advanced life support, the Coast Guard is their only hope.

Cases are being reported for towns closer and closer every day. Only a matter of time now.  Good luck with those "exemptions" from shelter-in-place, City government.  Almost no one is required to do it and about half the town is ignoring it.  Way to meet a crisis.
