COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions:
What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 is a disease, caused by a novel (or new) coronavirus that has not previously been seen in humans. Because it is a new virus, scientists are learning more each day. Although most people who have COVID-19 have mild symptoms, COVID-19 can also cause severe illness and even death.
What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness.
These symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus:
If you experience any of these symptoms, we encourage you to come in for a COVID-19 PCR or rapid antigen test. We will be able to evaluate your symptoms and tell you the next steps to take.
If your symptoms become severe, call 911.
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Congestion or Runny Nose
New loss of taste or smell
Which tests do MD Now offer to detect COVID-19?
MD Now offers both rapid antigen testing and PCR testing at all MD Now locations. The rapid antigen test takes approximately 15 minutes to receive results and is most accurate between 1-5 days after symptom onset. A positive rapid antigen test will help guide your treatment. The rapid antigen tests administered at Medpointe UC are more reliable than home test kits when taken in a clinic environment and in the right stage of your illness—up to 98% accurate. Medpointe UC also offers the PCR test, which uses the genetic signature of the virus to determine if you are infected. PCR tests continue to play an important role and may be used to help guide your diagnosis when a rapid test isn’t the test of choice, such as if you need a PCR test to return to work or travel. Results are available within 48 hours or less.
How can I protect myself from getting COVID-19?
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to COVID-19. It is thought Coronavirus is spread mainly from person-to-person who are in close contact through respiratory droplets produced from an infected person. To reduce the spread of COVID-19 everyone should:
Visit the CDC website for more tips on how to further protect yourself and others.
Wash their hands regularly. If soap and water is not readily available use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick, stay home as much as possible and put distance between themselves and others.
How should I care for someone sick at home?
If someone is sick in your household or is asymptomatic but has tested positive for COVID-19, we suggest following CDC’s guidance to protect yourself and others in your home.
Is it safe to visit your clinics right now?
Yes. In addition to our standard infection control protocols, which include sanitizing exam rooms and tablets between patients and sanitizing common areas regularly throughout the day, we have taken additional steps to protect our patients and staff which include:
Allowing patients to wait in their cars after check-in if preferred.
Requiring all patients and staff to wear masks.
What is the Omicron Variant?
The Omicron variant is a new SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) variant that was first reported in South Africa in early November. On November 26, the World Health Organization (WHO) designated the B.1.1.529 a variant of concern and assigned the name Omicron. It has since been reported worldwide, and now there are even subvariants of the Omicron variant. There are emerging variants similar to Omicron that the CDC is monitoring and are currently causing outbreaks in various parts of the world.
What should I do if I am sick?
If you have a fever, cough or other symptoms you might have COVID-19. If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, contact Medpointe UC or your healthcare provider and keep track of your symptoms. If you have an emergency warning sign, such as trouble breathing, seek emergency medical attention immediately.
