To protect the health and safety of our community, Sidney Health Center is implementing necessary precautions across the organization including visitor restrictions, rescheduling non-essential medical care, and limiting general public access to our services and retail areas.
What to do if you have symptoms of COVID-19?
If you develop symptoms such as fever, cough, and/or difficulty breathing, and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or have recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19, stay home and call your healthcare provider.
Older patients and individuals who have severe underlying medical conditions or are immunocompromised should contact their healthcare provider early, even if their illness is mild.
If you have severe symptoms, such as:
- persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- new confusion or inability to arouse
- bluish lips or face
Contact your healthcare provider or emergency room and seek care immediately. Your doctor will determine if you have signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and whether you should be tested.
If you think you have a respiratory illness, please follow this interim advice:
- If you are sick and have mild symptom, stay at home and self-isolate as much as possible.
- If you are sick enough that you would normally go to the doctor, call ahead to your medical provider for instructions.
- If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911.
- To avoid spreading respiratory illnesses, please do not show up at the Same Day Clinic or Sidney Health Center Clinic without calling 406-488-3963 in advance for instructions.
