COVID-19 is a new virus strain that is believed to spread in similar ways as the common cold. Symptoms include fever, cough and difficulty breathing. A health care provider can give you instructions for seeking care.
According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and other authorities, the risk for exposure in the United States remains low. We continue to follow established infection prevention protocols and remain prepared to care for patients.
Our health care system is working closely with our state and local health authorities to care for potentially affected individuals while taking steps to limit person-to-person spread within our communities. We have protocols in place, including training our staff and practicing for these scenarios. Constant monitoring and necessary precaution measures to ensure the safety of our patients, caregivers, visitors and community members have been put into place.
