This is an evolving situation. This page will be updated as more information is available.
To manage significantly larger volumes, The Everett Clinic is implementing our usual triage protocols during periods of high patient demand. This means we are recommending patients stay home if they have mild-to-moderate symptoms, using home monitoring and care for those symptoms. Please note that for 80% of people a Coronavirus (COVID-19) infection is mild and similar to the common cold. There are no antiviral medications to treat Coronavirus and antibiotics are not useful for treating viral infections such as Coronavirus.
The Everett Clinic is testing for COVID-19. However, many people do not need to be tested for clinical care purposes since there is currently no medication to treat COVID-19. Testing will be conducted based on DOH guidelines and provider discretion.
If you are tested, results will be delivered by a phone call or through MyChart. Login to the app for testing results and information.
Call your clinic to speak to a nurse if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Fever lasting more than 4 days, or fever returns after no fever for 2 days
- Coughing up blood
- Trouble breathing, chest pain or shortness of breath
- Extreme weakness
If you are experiencing life-threatening symptoms, call 9-1-1 or go to an Emergency Room.
