SYMPTOMS / SCREENING

Primary symptoms ranging from mild to severe, including:

  • FEVER
  • FATIGUE
  • DRY COUGH
  • SHORTNESS OF BREATH

SELF TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR CONFIRMED OR SUSPECTED COVID-19

Like most virus treatment, it is important to drink plenty of fluids, rest, and use over-the-counter pain reliever medication to ease the symptoms in the case of COVID-19.

  • Maintain Social distance and self quarantine for 14 days if you develop symptoms.
  • Vaccine or prescription medication options to prevent or cure the virus are currently in development.

According to the World Health Organization, 80% of people who contract COVID-19 recover without requiring hospitalization.To conserve the supply of limited COVID-19 tests, many patients with confirmed exposure or suspected COVID-19 will not be tested for the virus.

A virtual screening does not guarantee you will receive a referral for testing based on the provider’s clinical findings.

  • If testing is deemed medically necessary after the examination, an initial swab is obtained
  • Virtual screenings also help determine if an emergency center visit is required for more intensive treatment options

COVID-19 testing may be recommended if you are experiencing moderate cough and fever over 100.4 degrees, or have a chronic health condition including chronic kidney disease, heart disease, diabetes, chronic lung disease or are immunocompromised due to cancer treatment, recent surgeries, medications, or other conditions.

After scheduling your virtual appointment, you will be screened but tested only as directed by a provider. If you are experiencing life threatening symptoms including shortness of breath, call 911 or report to your nearest emergency department.
