Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Are You at Risk for COVID-19?

Questions to ask yourself about the Coronavirus with an interactive assessment and guidance on what to do if you're at a higher risk.


If You Feel Sick

If you feel sick with fever, cough, sore throat or difficulty breathing or were in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the 14 days before you began to feel sick, seek medical care. Before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room, call ahead and tell them about your possible exposure, recent travel and your symptoms.


Additional Care Options

Virtual Visits with a CHI St. Alexius Provider

When you need to see one of our participating CHI St. Alexius Health providers for a non-urgent, medical issue, you can now do so via the secure Zoom app, on your phone or computer.

Virtual Care Anywhere

Talk with a provider via the Virtual Care Anywhere app. This service is currently for those who are experiencing symptoms of COVID 19.

In an effort to preserve personal protective equipment for our frontline health care staff, we ask that you please provide your own mask upon entry of our facilities.


Safety Precautions for Elective Surgeries

Remember to take everyday preventive actions that are always recommended to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses.

  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands; germs spread this way.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol.
