Here's How We're Responding
With a growing number of confirmed COVID-19 (coronavirus) cases in West Michigan and the United States, feeling sick can be scary. If you have symptoms like fever, cough or shortness of breath, you can use this automated screener or call 833.559.0659 for advice on what to do next. Please note: screening is required before a COVID-19 diagnostic test.
- People 60 and older.
- People with underlying health conditions such as heart or lung disease, diabetes or obesity.
- People who have weakened immune systems.
- People who are pregnant.
People at higher risk of severe illness should stay home and away from large groups of people as much as possible. The CDC website has a comprehensive listing of people at higher risk.
Those with mild symptoms, no breathing difficulties and stable vital signs should stay home and self-quarantine, watching for worsening symptoms. If you are concerned about your symptoms, call your doctor or call the Spectrum Health COVID-19 hotline for a free phone screening at 833.559.0659. For patients who need testing, we offer drive-through testing by appointment only.
Currently, most testing is being reserved for patients who are severely ill, our hospitalized patients and our most vulnerable populations in accordance with Michigan Department of Health and Human Resources.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding that we are unable to test everyone who may potentially have COVID-19 at this time.
The CDC recommends quarantine for:
- At least three days (72 hours) have passed with no fever (without the use of fever-reducing drugs) and your symptoms have improved.
- At least seven days days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
