Dawson P, Rabold EM, Laws RL, et al. Loss of Taste and Smell as Distinguishing Symptoms of COVID-19 [published online ahead of print, 2020 Jun 21]. Clin Infect Dis. 2020;ciaa799. doi:10.1093/cid/ciaa799

Olfactory and taste dysfunctions should be considered for COVID-19 case identification and testing prioritization.
