What to do if you are Feeling Sick
If you are feeling sick, please first call your primary care doctor, a nurse hotline, or an urgent care center before going to the hospital. This will enable a medical professional to instruct you on what to do next. If you are worried that you or a loved one has the COVID-19 virus, check online resources like the CDC’s website.
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 or go to the emergency room.
If you call 911, please let the dispatcher know if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. This information is important to ensure the safety professionals responding to your emergency are wearing the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs).
