WHAT IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO COVID-19, OR THINK YOU MAY HAVE THE ILLNESS?
The following information is not professional medical advice but is provided to help you access the kind of professional advice you need to answer the question above.
PRAY for yourself and others with whom you may have come in contact.
CALL your primary care physician and get guidance about how to proceed, whether to be tested, etc. Most physicians and clinics ask that you call first before going into the clinic or hospital, but call 911 if you are in medical distress. The CDC has developed a "Self-Checker" that can help you make some of the decisions you are considering (the link is below), but you should always consult your physician.
STAY SAFE and keep others safe by practicing the social distancing guidelines recommended by the CDC and Louisiana Department of Health.
