COVID-19 FAQ PAGE

Q: Who is at risk for infection with the virus that causes COVID-19?

                A: Currently, those at greatest risk of infection are persons who have had prolonged, unprotected close contact with a patient with symptomatic, confirmed COVID-19

 

         Q: Who is at risk for severe disease from COVID-19?                                                               

                A:  People who may be at risk for more severe outcomes include older adults and persons who have certain underlying chronic conditions include chronic lung disease,                             moderate tO severe asthma, cardiac disease with complications, diabetes, or immunocompromising conditions.

         Q: HOW DOES THE VIRUS SPREAD?

        A: The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or         sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when people are in close     contact with one  another (within about 6 feet). COVID-19 is 10X MORE CONTAGIOUS THAN THE  FLU.

                Q:  WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19?

        A: Current symptoms reported for patients with COVID-19 have included mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough, and difficulty breathing.

          Q: When is someone infectious?

        A: Based on existing literature, the incubation period (the time from exposure to development of symptoms) ranges from 2–14 days.

          Q: Which body fluids can spread infection?

        A: COVID-19 has only been isolated from respiratory tract specimens. It is not yet known whether other non-respiratory body fluids from an infected person including         vomit, urine, breast milk, or semen can contain viable, infectious COVID-19.

            Q: CAN SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN QUARANTINED FOR COVID-19 SPREAD THE ILLNESS TO OTHERS?

                        A:  Quarantine means separating a person or group of people who have been exposed to a contagious disease but have not developed illness (symptoms) from others who                         have not been exposed, in order to prevent the possible spread of that disease. Quarantine is usually established for the incubation period of the communicable disease,                         which is the span of time during which people have developed illness after exposure. For COVID-19, the period of quarantine is 14 days from the last date of exposure.

         Q: HOW CAN I PROTECT MY CHILD FROM COVID-19?

            A: You can encourage your child to help stop the spread of COVID-19 by teaching them to do the same things everyone should do to stay healthy.

                Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

                Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.

                Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue and throw the tissue in the trash.

            Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or             preparing food.

            If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

            Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects (e.g., tables, countertops, light switches, doorknobs, and cabinet handles).

            Q: WHAT DO I DO IF I SUSPECT THAT A FAMILY MEMBER MAY HAVE COVID-19?

        A: CALL 2-1-1, OPTION 6 AND STATE PERSONNEL WILL ADDRESS YOUR QUESTIONS AND DIRECT YOU TO A TESTING CENTER IF NEEDED.

Today Children's Medical Clinics has begun Telehealth visits for our patients!! Just another example of how we hear the concerns of our parents and respond. Telehealth visits won't be able to replace all in-office visits for more serious illnesses with fever and well visits with immunizations but there are a number of issues we feel can be handled and also minimize the spread of infections. Call us at 972.932.1319 if you are interested in a Telehealth Visit!!
