            Frequently Asked Questions

            What is COVID-19 (novel coronavirus)?

            COVID-19 is an abbreviation for "coronavirus disease 2019," a newly identified respiratory virus that was first detected in the city of Wuhan, China山东11选5 on December 31, 2019. In the months since, person-to-person spread was subsequently reported outside Hubei Province and in countries outside China山东11选5, including in the United States.

            Is COVID-19 the flu?

            COVID-19 is not the same thing as influenza (the flu). Though its symptoms are similar, COVID-19 has a higher rate of transmission. A typical flu patient infects about 1.5 people, whereas COVID-19 patients infect an estimated 2.5 people. Because of this — and because there is currently no vaccine for COVID-19, as there is each year for prevalent flu strains — COVID-19 has the potential to be more dangerous to the public health than the flu.

            How can you catch COVID-19?

            COVID-19 spreads via microscopic droplets that are released when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Droplets can travel up to six feet. If they come in contact with your face, or land on a surface that you touch before touching your face, then you have been exposed.

            How widespread is COVID-19 in the U.S.?

            Until there is more extensive testing nationwide, we won’t know for certain. However, total confirmed cases, recoveries and deaths by country山东11选5/state are being tracked by , among others.

            Is a vaccine available for COVID-19?

            No vaccine for COVID-19 is available at this time.

            Symptoms & Testing

            What are the symptoms of COVID-19? How long do they take to appear?

            Symptoms can range from mild to severe, and can take up to 14 days after infection before you begin to have them. According to the CDC, the most common symptoms are:

            • Fever
            • Cough
            • Shortness of breath

            Seek emergency medical attention immediately if you are experiencing any of the following:

            • Difficulty breathing
            • Persistent chest pain or pressure
            • Bluish lips or face
            • Any other severe or concerning symptoms

            How do I know if it’s a cold, the flu or COVID-19?

            Here is a tool for helping you determine whether your symptoms are likely caused by a cold, the flu or COVID-19:

            Symptoms Cold Flu COVID-19
            Body aches Mild Common Sometimes
            Cough Common Common Common
            Fever Common Common
            Headache Common
            Nausea Sometimes
            Runny / stuffy nose Common Sometimes
            Shortness of breath In severe cases
            Sneezing Common Sometimes
            Sore throat Common Common Sometimes
            Tiredness Mild Common Sometimes

            If you are uncertain about your symptoms, we recommend calling your primary care doctor to discuss them over the phone.

            What should I do if I begin having COVID-19 symptoms or think I’ve been exposed?

            Call your primary care doctor’s office to discuss your symptoms, concerns and other factors over the phone. Your doctor will then determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19. If you are experiencing severe symptoms, call 9-1-1.

            Where can I get tested for COVID-19?

            Because the availability of tests is currently in a state of flux, we recommend calling your doctor to determine if testing is available in your area and whether your symptoms warrant testing.

            How does the test work?

            Testing for COVID-19 typically will involve a healthcare worker collecting a sample from your nose or back of your throat with a long cotton swab. Samples are then sent to a lab, where they are tested for the presence of antibodies that your body has produced to fight the COVID-19 virus.

            How long will it take to get test results?

            Test results turnaround will depend on the volume of samples submitted to the labs and how quickly the labs are able to analyze those samples. If you are not provided with an estimated delivery date by the person administering the test, contact your doctor to discuss.

            How can I access my COVID-19 test results?

            All patients who are tested for COVID-19 will receive a call regarding their test results. Test results will also be available online.

            Prevention & Wellness

            Who is at risk of catching COVID-19?

            Everyone is at risk of catching COVID-19. Anyone of any gender and any age group can potentially catch COVID-19. Some populations, however, are at a higher risk:

            Unknown Risk High Risk
            Pregnant women Older adults (age 65+)
            Mothers who are breastfeeding People with severe or chronic medical conditions (heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, asthma, etc.)
            People living in nursing 山东11选5s or long-term care facilities
            Severely obese people
            Immunocompromised people (i.e., cancer patients)

            How can I protect myself and others?

            Perhaps the most important way you can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to wash your hands. Soap and water are best; if none is readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

            • Avoid social gatherings of more than 10 people
            • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
            • Maintain social distancing when among people
            • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
            • Stay 山东11选5 if you are sick; only leave the house to seek medical care
            • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and then throw it in the trash; otherwise, cough or sneeze into your elbow
            • Clean and disinfect objects or surfaces that are touched frequently
            • Reduce unnecessary travel — local, domestic or international
            • If you are sick, wear a face mask when going out in public

            What is "social distancing" and how can I practice it?

            Social distancing means maintaining a distance of approximately six (6) feet from other people in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The CDC recommends the following:

            • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
            • Avoid mass gatherings
            • Avoid shaking hands

            Should I cancel any travel plans?

            At this time, AMITA Health recommends reassessing any upcoming trips and limiting any nonessential travel. You can find up-to-date travel recommendations here:
