Feeling Sick?

As cases of coronavirus continue to appear around Massachusetts, we want to be sure you have access to answers.


As announced by Governor Charlie Baker, effective immediately, all BMC HealthNet Plan members have access to Buoy, a free web-based tool you can use to check your symptoms, figure out if you should be tested for coronavirus, and learn about care options available to you.

To learn more about Buoy as a coronavirus resource, visit the FAQ document. Otherwise, feel free to try it yourself at buoy.com/mass or mass.gov/online-health-tool. Together, let’s help stop the spread.

What are the symptoms?

The symptoms for COVID-19 are very similar to the flu and include:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell

Check your symptoms using the Buoy tool or call your doctor for guidance.
