Are COVID-19 symptoms different for older adults?

Older adults with COVID-19 may not show common symptoms such as fever or respiratory symptoms. Less common symptoms can include new or worsening malaise, headache, or new dizziness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell. Additionally, more than two temperatures >99.0F might also be a sign of fever in this population. Identification of these symptoms should prompt isolation and further evaluation for COVID-19.
