CNHSA COVID-19 Patient Information

What do I need to do if I have symptoms of a cold, flu, or COVID-19?

When you have symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath:

  • If your symptoms are mild, stay home and treat as any other cold
    • Around 80% of COVID-19 cases are classified as “mild”
  • If your symptoms are more than mild, please call your Primary Care Provider or your local Health Clinic and ask to speak with a nurse BEFORE visiting a Health facility. 
  • We are encouraging the use of virtual visits and telemedicine to reduce the chance of spreading colds and viruses.  You may be eligible for a Virtual or Telephonic visit with your provider.
  • Please be aware that if you come to a healthcare facility, you will be screened for fever and symptoms prior to entering the facilities
    • This is done in order to reduce the chance of disease spread
  • You may be asked to wait in your car
    • If you are screened and asked to remain outside the facility, you will need to provide your cell number for a phone visit with a healthcare worker
    • You may be tested (swabbed) outside our buildings
    • A COVID-19 test takes around three days for results to be available
