Cottage Health is providing ongoing care for our community and has isolation precautions in place for COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses.
You can help protect yourself and others from the spread of infection.
Most people with COVID-19 will not require hospitalization. Testing for the virus may be ordered by a physician, after assessment of symptoms and risk factors.
Possible symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, difficulty breathing, fatigue/weakness and diarrhea.
Please call your doctor for guidance if you develop symptoms, or visit cottagehealth.org/carenow for a COVID-19 assessment and guidance.
Call ahead if you are going to visit your healthcare provider in person, so precautions can be taken to prevent spread of germs.
If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911.
Individuals with symptoms of COVID-19 seeking care at our hospital emergency departments will be screened and triaged based on symptoms.
Most elective procedures are being rescheduled to help conserve essential hospital supplies and resources, and to help people avoid unnecessary close contact.
To protect the health of vulnerable patients and essential health care workers, it is necessary at this time for our hospitals to restrict visits.
