Are headaches a symptom of COVID?

Yes, a headache can be a symptom of COVID-19. About one out of ten people with COVID-19 report having a headache.

You’ve probably had a headache before. The main symptom is pain in your head or face. The pain might be dull or sharp or throbbing.

An isolated headache probably isn’t something to worry about. But if you develop other symptoms of COVID-19, contact your doctor.
