M Health Fairview: If you have a scheduled appointment, first check yourself for:

  • Fever
  • Dry cough
  • Shortness of breath

Donít come to the hospital (unless you need emergency care) or clinic if you have any of these symptoms. Call your clinic for help or visit OnCare.org, our 24/7 online clinic.  

Stay healthy with these self-care tips:? 

  • Stay at home as much as you can (this is called self-quarantine).
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.? 
  • Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds with soap and water. If you donít have soap and water, use hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.?? 
  • Plan how you will take care of sick family members.  
    • Make plans for child care if you are sick or if your child is sick.  
    • Have a thermometer at home to check for fever if you or a loved one feels sick.
