Flu like symptoms after a beach day at Jekyll Island

18:27 Jun 2 2019 Jekyll Island, Glynn County, Georgia, 31527, USA

I was with three other adults and two children, and I was the only one to feel sick. Within hours of spending the day at the beach I began to feel that scratch in my throat. Now being two days later I have more symptoms including fatigue, body aches, headache, and sore throat. Checked my temperature and I do not have a fever.
