Questions to ask yourself about the Coronavirus with an interactive assessment and guidance on what to do if you're at a higher risk.


 

Elective Procedures

CHI Health has resumed elective and non-emergency procedures at most campuses. Just as we have always done, we are caring for our patients with their safety and that of our caregivers’ top of mind. Learn more about what we're doing to keep you safe and what to expect for your procedure.

Additional Care Options

Virtual Care

CHI Health Virtual Care is available 24/7. Talk to a doctor about your symptoms and possible exposure or risk factors. CHI Health Virtual Care can guide people at risk for Coronavirus to the right level of care. See more about the process and virtual care app.

Virtual Visits

When you need to see one of our participating CHI Health providers for a non-urgent, medical issue, you can now do so via the secure Zoom app, on your phone or computer. See how you can set up your virtual appointment.

Visitation Restrictions

Visitation restrictions are currently in place across all of our locations to decrease possible exposure to Coronavirus (COVID-19).

See full restrictions policy.

Precautions

Remember to take everyday preventive actions that are always recommended to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses.

  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands; germs spread this way.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol.

If You Feel Sick

If you feel sick with fever/chills, cough, sore throat, difficulty breathing, other flu-like symptoms or were in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the 14 days before you began to feel sick, seek medical care. Before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room, call ahead and tell them about your possible exposure, recent travel and your symptoms.
