By now you know one of the major symptoms of COVID-19 is a loss of taste or smell.
Experts are saying you may be able to check your symptoms just by preparing your morning cup of coffee.
James Schwob, a professor at Tufts University, says one way to determine if you have COVID-19 is to smell your ground coffee before preparing it in the morning to determine if you’ve lost your sense of smell.
Over at Penn State, professors say besides coffee you can take a whiff of flowers, spices, and other aromas as a means to make a quick check.
As a reminder, don’t leave it up solely to just smelling fragrances. Remember to stay home if you’re not feeling well, practice social distancing, sanitize and wash your hands, and wear a face mask for protection.
