Helpful information about the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
COVID-19 is a new virus strain that is believed to spread in similar ways as the common cold, such as when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Symptoms include fever, cough and difficulty breathing. A health care provider can give you instructions for seeking care, which you can do without exposing others.
Across the world, new cases of COVID-19 are being reported, and some parts of the country have declared a state of emergency. However, according to the CDC and other authorities, the risk remains low for exposure in the U.S.
Hoag clinicians are following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, and we have strong infection control policies, procedures and systems in place. As recommended by the CDC, our clinicians are screening all patients for fever, respiratory symptoms and travel history within a month prior to symptom onset. Anyone meeting the CDC-established criteria would be isolated and further testing and care will be guided by the health department.
Use home quarantine or home isolation:
- Stay home if you believe you have been exposed to the virus, even if you are not showing any symptoms, and contact your health care provider.
- If you have traveled to a country on the CDC list of level 2 or 3 travel health notices and feel ill, contact your health care provider.
- Stay home when you are sick, especially if you have respiratory illness symptoms. At the present time, these symptoms are more likely due to influenza or other respiratory viruses than to a COVID-19 infection. Whether you have seasonal flu, the common cold, or something else, it’s important you stay away from others when sick.
- Monitor yourself for fever, coughing and shortness of breath.
