The new symptoms include: chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat and new loss of taste or smell. Previously listed symptoms include fever, cough and shortness or breath or difficulty breathing.

Also on the list: emergency warning signs that a case of COVID-19 requires immediate medical attention. These warning signs include trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, any new confusion or inability to arouse, bluish lips or face, the CDC said.
