What is coronavirus?

Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that can cause respiratory illness in humans. These illnesses are quite common.

However, a new strain of coronavirus, called COVID-19 (formerly 2019-nCoV), was recently reported in Wuhan, China. Travelers from that area of the world have since carried the virus to other countries including the United States. COVID-19 is transported via respiratory droplets.

What are the symptoms of the COVID-19?

Patients with confirmed infection from the COVID-19 virus reported these symptoms:

  • Fever.
  • Cough.
  • Difficulty breathing.
  • For many patients, causes mild cold symptoms

The elderly and those with pre-existing medical conditions appear to be more vulnerable to the virus.

What should I do when I arrive at the clinic for testing?

Patients will notice signage advising that masks must be worn at all times while in the clinic. 

Patients will begin by completing a registration and necessary paperwork at the front desk area. Once registered, patients will immediately be escorted to a room if one is available.

If a room is not available, patients may wait in the waiting area prior to being brought back to a room if they are wearing a mask. If sufficient room is not available in the waiting room to allow for social distancing, patients may wait in their vehicle. They may also wait in their vehicle if they are not comfortable waiting in the waiting room.

Clinic staff will direct patients with additional instructions via a testing screening process. The provider will recommend needed treatment and/or testing, depending on the severity of symptoms.

CDC Recommendations

Everyone can do their part to help. Take everyday preventive actions to help stop the spread of germs.

  • Avoid close contact.
    Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
  • Avoid large crowds.
    Limit the spread of illness.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
    If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. This will help prevent spreading your illness to others.
  • Cover your mouth and nose.
    Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick. Serious respiratory illnesses are spread by cough, sneezing, or unclean hands.
  • Clean your hands.
    Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Disinfect and clean surface areas.
    Use disinfecting cleaners and wipe off all surface areas in contact with the illness.
