What to do if you've been exposed
If your child has had a known exposure, is having symptoms, or a test is required for school, etc., here are your options:
Rapid tests take about 15 minutes to perform and be read. You may have a co-pay. You may make an appointment to be tested at our office by clicking here.
PCR tests take about 5 minutes to perform. They are sent to a lab and results are typically returned within 72 hours. You may have a co-pay. You may make an appointment to be tested at our office by clicking here.
Per current CDC guidelines, it is recommended to isolate and use precautions (masks, distance, circulating fresh air) for 10 days after symptom start
after you have no fever for at least 24 hours, without the use of fever-reducing medications, and with improvement of other symptoms.
Tell your close contacts that they may have been exposed to COVID-19. An infected person can spread COVID-19 starting 48 hours (or 2 days) before the person has any symptoms or tests positive.
Most people with Covid-19 have mild illness and can recover at home without medical care. Do not leave your home, except to get medical care when necessary.
As much as possible, stay in a specific room and away from other people and pets in your home. If possible, you should use a separate bathroom. If you need to be around other people or animals in or outside of the home, wear a mask.
Do not visit public areas.
Avoid public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
Take care of yourself.
Get rest and stay hydrated.
Take over-the-counter medicines, such as acetaminophen, to help you feel better. (Do not take ibuprofen products, as they may exacerbarte symptoms.)
Stay in touch with your doctor. Call before you get medical care. Be sure to get care immediately if you have trouble breathing, or have other emergency warning signs, or if you think it is an emergency.
