The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough, and shortness of breath.
What should I do if I have symptoms or have been exposed?
Call your healthcare provider, or call before going to the emergency room.
If you have not been around someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19 but are showing symptoms the Dept. of Health has a guidance document with information on the next recommended steps here.
If you were potentially exposed to someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19 please contact your healthcare provider and refer to this document for guidance here.
You can use the Coronavirus Assessment Tool from Providence and Microsoft to better evaluate your next steps (note: this is not a substitute for medical care. Please contact your doctor if you have symptoms).
If you test positive for COVID-19, your healthcare provider will provide you with the next steps following the guidelines laid out by the Dept. of Health here.
How do I get tested?
If you have symptoms call your healthcare provider or the Klickitat County Public Health Dept. for more information.
As there are currently limitations in the healthcare systems’ ability to obtain samples from people as rapidly as we would like, testing is focused on people displaying symptoms of COVID-19 and provided at the provider’s discretion.
There is currently no medication to treat COVID-19 so people do not always need to be tested for clinical care purposes. Currently, anyone with a fever or cough should assume their illness could be COVID-19 and take steps to prevent others in the community and their household from the disease. Please see the guidance document from the Dept. of Health regarding proper steps, here.
