What to do if you are sick - call first

We have been in communication with our hospitals. They have said that one issue they are seeing is that people are showing up and want to be tested. This is not a good idea. If you think you are sick you should call your doctor and follow the instructions given. Just showing up puts an added strain on our emergency rooms, and if you are not sick, could expose you to those that are. The hospital says they are not testing everybody so again, just showing up to get tested is not the right thing to do.

Below is the link for CDC guidance on what to do if you are sick.
