What are Viral Respiratory Illnesses (Upper Respiratory Illness / URI)?

COVID19 and Influenza (FLU) and RSV are contagious viruses that result in a variety of symptoms.  It is difficult to tell the difference between infections with these viruses because there is a great deal of overlap among the symptoms (listed below).  The symptoms are very variable between individuals and can range from mild to very severe and may result in hospitalization and even death (usually in individuals with higher risk)

How Long Until I Get Symptoms?

  • FLU and RSV – A person usually develops symptoms 1-4 days after exposure
  • COVID19 – A person usually develops symptoms between day 2-5 but may not develop symptoms until 14 days after infection

When am I Contagious with an Upper Viral Respiratory Illness?

Although variable between the different viruses, people can be contagious about 1-2 days before showing symptoms but usually are most contagious during the time of symptoms.

 How are URI Viruses spread?

  • Droplets – The most common way COVID-19 / Flu /RSV spreads is through respiratory droplets through talking, coughing, or sneezing
  • Closes Personal Contact – Touching or shaking hands with a person who is symptomatic or an asymptomatic carrier
  • Surface Contact – This is less likely, but touching surfaces that may be contaminated with the virus

Who should consider a Respiratory Panel for Flu A/B, RSV A/B, & COVID?

  • Adults over the Age of 65
  • Adults and Children with Chronic Health Conditions
    • Asthma
    • Heart Disease
    • Diabetes
    • Chronic Kidney Disease
    • HIV
    • Cancer
  • During Pregnancy

Symptoms of a Viral Respiratory Infection

This is not an exhaustive list:
  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Muscle aches
  • Headache
  • Loss of taste or smell (Covid specific)
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion
  • Nausea or Vomiting or Diarrhea

Common Symptoms of Each Virus:

  • SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19): Symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, fatigue, and body aches.
  • Flu A/B: Commonly causes fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, congestion, runny nose, and fatigue.
  • RSV A/B: Often leads to coughing, wheezing, difficulty breathing, and in severe cases, bronchiolitis or pneumonia, especially in infants and the elderly.

Will I need to do anything to prepare for the test?

  • No special preparation is needed

The CDC reports an increase in COVID-19 and influenza activities, with RSV also remaining high. New vaccines and treatments, like an antibody for RSV, are helping to manage these infections. The emphasis continues to be on vaccinations and preventive measures to mitigate the impact of these respiratory viruses Overall, the prevalence of URIs in the U.S., including conditions like flu, COVID-19, and RSV, is on a rise, with various regions experiencing different levels of activity. The emphasis remains on vaccination and preventive measures to mitigate the impact of these infections

  • What are the common symptoms of respiratory illnesses like flu, RSV, and COVID-19?

    Common symptoms for these respiratory illnesses often overlap and can include fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, and headaches. COVID-19 may also present with loss of taste or smell. It's important to note that symptoms can range from mild to severe and vary by individual.

  • When should I get tested for respiratory illnesses?

    Testing is recommended if you exhibit symptoms consistent with a respiratory illness, especially if they are new or unexpected. Also, consider testing if you've been in close contact with someone who has a confirmed case of a respiratory illness or if advised by a healthcare provider

  • What types of tests are available for these illnesses?

    Various tests are available including rapid antigen tests, PCR tests, and antibody tests. Rapid tests can provide quick results, often within minutes, while PCR tests are more sensitive and are conducted in a lab. Antibody tests can indicate past infection.

  • How can I differentiate between flu, RSV, and COVID-19 based on symptoms?

    It can be challenging to differentiate based on symptoms alone as they are quite similar. Testing is the most reliable way to determine the specific illness. Condoms and other protective measures reduce the risk but do not eliminate it entirely. Many STIs can be asymptomatic, so testing is the only way to know for sure.

  • Can one test detect flu, RSV, and COVID-19?

    Our Laboratory offers multiplex tests that can simultaneously check for multiple viruses, such as flu, RSV, and COVID-19, from a single sample.  Our comprehensive Respiratory Panel checks for more than 20 agents causing upper respiratory illnesses

  • What should I do if I test positive for a respiratory illness?

    Follow the guidelines provided by health authorities, which typically include isolating to prevent the spread, monitoring symptoms, and seeking medical attention if symptoms worsen. Inform close contacts about your illness.

  • Are there treatments available for these respiratory illnesses?

    reatment depends on the specific illness. For example, antiviral medications are available for flu, while supportive care is often recommended for mild cases of RSV and COVID-19. Severe cases may require hospitalization. Always consult with a healthcare provider for guidance.  In some cases medications can make the Flu or COVID symptoms milder and the disease last not as long

  • How accurate are the tests for respiratory illnesses?

    Test accuracy can vary based on the type of test and the timing of testing relative to symptom onset. PCR tests are generally more accurate than rapid antigen tests.  We offer PCR or NAAT or Molecular testing for Upper Respiratory Infections
