Testing

Asante’s drive-thru COVID testing sites in Medford and Grants Pass are closed as of April 30, 2022.

For COVID testing, several other locations in the community offer this service, including in Jackson County and Josephine County.

Note: COVID-19 testing is NOT available at any Asante clinic, Emergency Department or urgent care location.

Vaccine

All Oregonians 5 and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccination is the safest, most effective and reliable way to keep yourself, your family and the community healthy and safe.

How to get care

COVID-19 symptoms that may occur 2-14 days after exposure to the virus include coughing and shortness of breath, or at least two of the following: fever, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle or body aches, headache, runny nose, nausea, diarrhea, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell.

  • For emergencies, call 911. Emergency warning signs include trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion or inability to arouse, or bluish lips or face.
  • For mild symptoms, contact your provider, visit an Urgent Care Clinic or request a Video Visit on your mobile device with the MyChart app.

Monoclonal antibody (MAB) treatment

An intravenous MAB treatment produced by GlaxoSmithKline, sotrovimab, is effective against the omicron variant and available at Asante for appropriate cases of COVID-19. If you have questions about eligibility, please speak with your medical provider.

Our drive-thru MAB clinic is now closed. The MAB injection offered at our drive-thru clinic was highly effective against the delta variant; however, it has not shown to be effective against disease caused by the omicron variant. The omicron variant currently accounts for more than 80% of COVID-19 cases in our area and continues to increase daily.

Common questions

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.

Seek emergency medical attention if someone is having:

  • Trouble breathing.

  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest.

  • Inability to wake or stay awake.

  • Pale, gray, or blue-colored skin, lips or nail beds depending on skin tone.

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?

Give BloodPlease 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.
