Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China. Risk of infection with COVID-19 is higher for people who are close contacts of someone known to have COVID-19, for example healthcare workers, or household members. Other people at higher risk for infection are those who live in or have recently been in an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19.
The virus is thought to spread mainly between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It is possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
To protect yourself, keep your distance from people who are sick, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands and wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
If you are sick with COVID-19 or suspect you are infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, you should take steps to help prevent the disease from spreading to people in your home and community: stay home except to get medical care, self-isolate, call ahead before you visit your doctor, wear a cloth covering your nose and mouth around others, cover your coughs and sneezes, clean your hands often, avoid sharing household items, clean high-touch surfaces everyday and monitor your symptoms regularly. Older adults and/or people who have serious underlying medical conditions like severe obesity, chronic lung, kidney or liver diseases, diabetes and serious heart conditions are at higher risk for illness and should seek medical attention immediately if symptoms occur.
Type of Test
This FDA-approved antibody test is a quick and mostly pain-free procedure that uses only a few drops of the patient’s blood. After a swift finger-prick test, the patient’s blood is injected with a solution that will determine whether they have antibodies for COVID-19 within 15 minutes. A positive result for IgM, an antibody that initially forms after contraction of the virus, will likely show up 5 to 7 days after symptoms have begun while a positive result for IgG indicates that the patient had the virus and recovered from it even if they never received a positive diagnosis, possibly developing immunity to future infection.
This self examination will help you ascertain whether you should sign-up for further COVID-19 testing and/or related assessments.
If you had any of these symptoms please contact us directly.
If you have symptoms and get tested for the virus, a self-isolation period of 14 days for you and everyone in your household is necessary.
