Common COVID Q&A


Can I be swabbed for COVID-19 at your facility?

Currently, our office is limited on COVID-19 nasal swab tests with no indication from the supplier of regular availability.  We are sorry for the inconvenience. 

I’m not experiencing any symptoms, but want to be tested for COVID just to make sure. Can I do this with your facility?

If you do not have symptoms and want to be tested, our office does not provide drive thru testing.  Please contact and go to your nearest drive thru testing center.

I am having some symptoms that could be classified as COVID, what should I do?

If you have symptoms such as: cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, diminished taste or smell, abnormal fatigue, congestion, headache, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, and are interested in testing, please speak with a receptionist to be scheduled for a Telehealth appointment with our nurse practitioner to discuss the appropriate tests and management of your symptoms. Please do not come into our office if you have these symptoms without approval from a Triage nurse. 

I have been in direct contact with a person who tested positive for COVID, what should I do?

If you have come into direct contact with a confirmed COVID-19 positive person, please quarantine in your home for 10 days following your last encounter with the positive person.  Testing is not recommended as you can result positive anytime within that 10-day period.  

I tested positive for COVID. How long do I need to quarantine before it is safe for me to be around other people again?

If you have been diagnosed positive with COVID-19, please remain quarantined for at least 10 days after your symptoms started, plus 24 hours symptom and fever free without the use of antipyretics. If you continue to have symptoms past the 10-day mark, please continue to quarantine until your symptoms have been resolved for 24 hours. 

I tested negative for COVID. How long do I need to quarantine before I can safely be around other people again?

If you have been tested for COVID-19 and resulted NEGATIVE, please continue to quarantine for 10 days after your symptoms started, unless otherwise indicated by your provider. 

What medications can I take to prevent or alleviate symptoms of COVID?

At this time, there are no prescription drugs or other therapeutics approved by the FDA to prevent or treat COVID-19.  We recommend treating your symptoms with the standard over the counter measures as with other viral illnesses (such as a cold or flu).  If you have questions about what over the counter medications you may take, please talk with one of the Triage nurses. 

Please be courteous and conscientious of others – wear a mask, wash your hands often, and social distance. This not only protects you, but protects others as well!
