If you are feeling ill with symptoms such as cough, fever and shortness of breath, it’s best to isolate yourself at home. Wear a face mask, if available, when around other people. If a face mask isn’t available, improvise with a scarf or bandana.
“Obviously, if you are sick with the coronavirus and you go to a facility to get tested or evaluated, you could infect somebody else. I think the main message is that if you would not have sought care prior to the coronavirus being in our community, you probably don’t need to seek care now,” said James M. Frazier, M.D., vice president, medical affairs and quality, Norton Healthcare.
Please take our online questionnaire if you’re concerned about your symptoms. If you need to get care, try a remote visit using Norton eCare. If that doesn’t work for you or you have trouble getting through, make an appointment at a Norton Immediate Care Center.
To get started with Norton eCare, sign in to MyNortonChart. If you don’t have a MyNortonChart account, sign up at NortonHealthcare.com/MyNortonChart. Norton eCare providers will screen you and determine the next steps in your treatment, much like an office visit.
If your condition becomes severe, contact an emergency room and let them know you will be coming.
