COVID-19 is a viral infection that can cause respiratory failure and mortality. It is easily spread by close contact, respiratory droplets, or by touching a surface that was recently contaminated. Vaccinations will decrease your symptoms, but it will not prevent you from contracting the disease. Even with the vaccinations, some people can have post-covid symptoms. Our goal is help treat and manage all the stages of covid-19.
Post covid-19 symptoms can be fatigue, fever, cough, chest pain, rashes, abnormal heart rhythm or rate, headaches, neurological changes like pins and needles feelings on arms or legs, depression, anxiety, diarrhea, or joint pain. They can continue for weeks to months after COVID-19.
If you are positive for COVID-19 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends no traveling for 10 days, stay at home to quarantine, wear well-fitting masks, wash hands, cover up when sneezing or coughing, avoid sharing household items, clean surfaces in your house regularly, and monitor your symptoms. Inform your provider or go to the ER if symptoms worsen.
