Wisconsin Community Health Centers are working closely with local, state, and national Public Health officials to address COVID - 19 in the best way possible.

If you are experiencing cough, fever, and/or shortness of breath or think you have been exposed to Coronavirus, please call your primary care provider for guidance on what to do.  Do not go directly to any healthcare facility unless you have been instructed to do so by a medical professional.  It is important that proper safety measures are taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

If all the talk about #COVID19 is making you feel overwhelmed or frightened, support is available through the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. Call @distressline at 1-800-985-5990 or text TalkWithUs to 66746. You are not alone. #COVID19_WI #NoStigma

 

What is COVID - 19?

There are many types of coronaviruses including some that commonly cause mild upper-respiratory tract illnesses. COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease, identified 2019) is a new disease, caused by a novel (or new) coronavirus that has not previously been seen in humans. The virus that causes COVID-19 spreads very easily in communities from person to person. Most common symptoms reported include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. For more information about what COVID-19 is, visit the CDC Frequently Asked Questions.

The CDC also provides a comprehensive overview of COVID-19, what to do if you are sick, how to protect yourself and your family, and general guidance around travel, work, and community gatherings. Learn more here.
