If you or someone you know needs health care services related to COVID-19, follow these steps:
- Contact your physician to outline symptoms and discuss next steps. Testing can only occur with a physician referral at this point.
- If you do not have a physician, call 211 to be referred to a community clinic or other resource that can help.
- CDC Quarantine Guidelines: CDC updated their quarantine requirements: Previously, those in quarantine had to go 48 hours without a fever and without using fever-reducing medication. Now, patients have to go fever-free for 72 hours without fever-reducing medication. This applies to those currently under quarantine and those who may be quarantined in the future. In addition, before leaving isolation, a patient's other symptoms — including shortness of breath or a cough — must have improved and at least seven days must have passed from when the symptoms first appeared.
