Understanding COVID-19 Testing
Testing for coronavirus/COVID-19 is indicated for those whom meet the current guidelines. Please understand hospital ERs are not meant to be test centers.
Having fever, cough or shortness of breath are not in themselves criteria for getting tested.
If you’re feeling sick, you should call your doctor, who knows you best. He or she can fully evaluate your symptoms, travel history and other risk factors, and then recommend testing or not. Also criteria for testing are continually changing as we learn more about the exposure risks of this strain of coronavirus.
Self-Isolation vs. Quarantine:
Isolation separates sick people from those who are not sick.
Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a sickness to see if they become sick.
- The department of health recommends 14-days of isolation. Limiting your contact with others in your home as much as possible, staying in a separate room and using a separate bathroom if available.
- It’s advised that no visitors come over unless the person needs to be in your home.
- During this time, you should also monitor your health. Take your temperature with a thermometer two times a day and monitor for fever. Also, watch for cough and trouble breathing.
- If you start feeling sick, call your Millennium healthcare provider and then call the health department in your county.
Social Distancing Explained:
- Do not take public transportation, taxis, or ride-shares during the time you are practicing social distancing.
- Avoid crowded places (such as shopping centers and movie theaters) and limit your activities in public.
- Keep your distance from others (about 6 feet or 2 meters).
Working on Testing:
We are working to acquire the recommended test kits to collect possible COVID-19 specimens ASAP. These tests have only previously been made available to governmental and public health organizations. We will provide more information as it becomes available and will continue to keep you informed about our protocols going forward.
Other Health Reminders:
- Avoid contact with sick people.
- If you’re sick, stay at home and avoid crowds.
- Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60-95% alcohol.
- It is especially important to clean hands after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with your arm, not your hands.
- Refrain from touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Do NOT travel if you are sick.
