Why the COVID-19 vaccine is important
When should I get care?
If you have COVID-19 symptoms that are not manageable at home, contact your provider, visit an Urgent Care Clinic or request a Urgent Care Video Visit on your mobile device with the MyChart app. For emergencies, call 911.
If you have a minor cold, there is no need to seek care or testing for COVID-19.
The severity of COVID-19 symptoms can range from very mild to severe. Most cases of the respiratory disease are mild, like a common cold. People who are older or have existing medical conditions such as heart disease, asthma or diabetes may be at a higher risk for serious illness.
Should I be treated at home or in a hospital?
Most cases of the COVID-19 infection are mild and can be self-treated at home.
Medical treatment at hospitals is limited to relieving symptoms. There is currently no vaccine or anti-viral medication available to treat COVID-19.
How can I stay well?
You can reduce your risk of becoming infected by COVID-19 by following these guidelines:
- Wear a mask while in public.
- Increase hand washing with soap and water.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- Avoid sharing dishes, glasses, bedding and other handheld items like pens.
- Stay home from work, school and events at the first sign of illness.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue.
How can I help?
Please give blood
The effects of COVID-19 are having an enormous impact on the blood supply in Southern Oregon, as well as across the country.
This shortage will ultimately affect our patients — the very people who rely on us to provide them with the best care possible.
The need for blood is urgent. Please encourage your family and friends to donate blood if they are healthy and able.
Go to American Red Cross to schedule an appointment in your area.
