Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I need to be tested? 
If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, call your primary care physician to request testing. Keep in mind that there is no treatment for COVID-19 and people who are mildly ill may be able to isolate and care for themselves at home. Only patients who are in respiratory distress need to visit a local emergency center for testing. Your primary care provider should call ahead to notify the emergency center of your need for testing.

Where should I go if I'm pregnant? 
If you are experiencing symptoms of fever, cough, sneezing, sore throat or rash, but are NOT having any concerns in regards to your pregnancy (no pain, loss of movement, etc.) please call your primary care physician and do NOT come to Labor & Delivery Triage.

What criteria is used for screening COVID-19? 
Persons who exhibit symptoms of respiratory illness with a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, have had close contact with someone confirmed to have COVID-19, have traveled internationally or on a cruise, are over the age of 65 with health conditions or people with compromised immune systems could potentially be tested for COVID-19. Contact your primary care provider to request testing.
