Updated August 5, 2021

Multiple news outlets quoted John A. Sellick Jr., DO, professor of medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases, in stories on whether nosebleeds are a sign of COVID-19. Sellick says nosebleeds definitely are not a main symptom of COVID-19, but adds “we’re at the time of year where people get nosebleeds anyway, due to allergies and being in air conditioning.”
