If You Are Sick
- Staying home
- Getting plenty of sleep
- Drinking plenty of fluids
- Taking over-the-counter medications to reduce fever, body aches and congestion
Get care if you think you need medical attention based on your combination of symptoms.
- Schedule a video visit with a provider. On-demand video visits are available 24/7, convenient and allow you to stay home to prevent the potential spread to others. Conduct an on-demand video visit using MyChart on desktop or through the Spectrum Health app. Learn more.
- After a video visit, the provider may still recommend you be seen in-person or direct you to an urgent care location, based on the severity of your symptoms.
- Log into MyChart to be screened for a self-scheduled COVID-19 lab test. You can also message your provider or call your provider’s office. Learn more.
- Should you qualify and be administered a COVID-19 lab test, note that test results typically will be available within 24 to 48 hours. Your results will be posted to your MyChart account and shared with your provider.
- It is recommended that self-isolate at home until:
- You have had no fever for at least 72 hours (that is three full days of no fever without the use of medicine that reduces fevers)
- Other symptoms have improved (e.g. when your cough or shortness of breath have improved)
- At least 10 days have passed since your symptoms have appeared
- If your COVID-19 lab results are negative or “not detected”, you no longer need to self-isolate at home; however, would still recommend staying home until you start to feel better.
