WHAT TO DO IF YOU’RE FEELING SICK
Patients with COVID-19 can experience mild to severe respiratory illness.
If you are experiencing MILD or MODERATE symptoms, such as fever, runny nose or cough, do NOT go to the Emergency Room. Call your primary health care provider prior to going to a clinic.
Your primary care provider will evaluate if testing is necessary, and direct you to a facility that can conduct sampling.
This will ensure that healthcare professionals can prepare in advance should you need to receive testing or treatment. Seeking the most appropriate level of care will help protect the community and minimize exposure to other patients and staff.
If you have symptoms and feel you need testing call Door County Medical Center hotline at 920-746-3700.
If you are experiencing SEVERE illness, call your doctor’s office immediately or go to the Emergency Room.
Call ahead and let them know you may have COVID-19 so they can be prepared
Symptoms of SEVERE illness can include:
- Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- New confusion or inability to arouse
- Bluish lips or face
*This list is not all inclusivePlease consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning.
If you are experiencing a medical emergency (you cannot breathe) call 911 and tell them if you believe you may have COVID-19.
If you do not have symptoms of COVID-19, you DO NOT need to be tested.
