The three culprits often share common symptoms. Yours could be more or less severe, or you might only have a few. Stay at home if you are ill and call your doctor to discuss your symptoms and whether further testing is necessary.


The National Institute on Aging has released a useful infographic to help us tell which one we might be dealing with.



According to the NIA:


Common symptoms of a cold include sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, and cough.


Common symptoms of the flu include fever and/or chills, headache, muscle pain or body aches, feeling tired or weak, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, vomiting, and diarrhea.


Common symptoms of COVID-19 include fever and/or chills, headache, muscle pain or body aches, feeling tired or weak, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, vomiting and diarrhea, and change in or loss of taste or smell.


Ultimately, you're advised to reach out to your healthcare provider for diagnosis and treatment.
