For current information about COVID-19 and recommendations for keeping yourself and your family healthy, we recommend these resources:
If you have questions, please call the Washington State Department of Health at 1.800.525.0127
If you have overseas travel plans, we encourage you to visit the CDC travel site.
Our 24-Hour Nurse Navigator – Healthline is a free service available any time of day and night. Our consulting nurse service provides home care information, and can help determine if urgent care or emergency care are called for. Call 425.899.3555 with specific questions about COVID-19.
The same good health habits that prevent other viruses like the flu also prevent the spread of COVID-19. They also decrease the risk of getting sick, which would make you more susceptible to COVID-19.
The likelihood of exposure from visiting the Kirkland campus for an appointment or to see a patient is a similar risk of exposure we experience every cold and flu season in our communities.
As always, it is important to remain vigilant in recognizing any symptoms and seek care immediately if symptoms consistent with COVID-19 are present. Please visit www.cdc.gov to learn more about symptoms and when to seek care.
At this time, appointments will continue as scheduled. Should there be any changes to your appointment or a different recommendation from your physician, we will notify you as soon as possible.
If you’re in need of canceling an appointment, please contact your physician’s office directly.
If you’re experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19, please stay home, limit your exposure to other people and monitor symptoms. If symptoms progress, please call 425.899.3555 before visiting EvergreenHealth.
While COVID-19 is new, our response is not. EvergreenHealth treats patients with a variety of infectious diseases on a daily basis. These patients are isolated and treated in appropriate spaces by trained staff using specialized equipment. We are trained and equipped to safely care for these patients and to protect the health of other patients and our staff.
According to the CDC, the most susceptible patients to date are more senior members of our community and primarily those with compromised immunity.
We encourage you to talk to your personal OB about your concerns and options.
At this time, we continue to welcome visitors. However, if you have a fever or a cough, please return home and visit us when you are well. Children and those with existing health conditions or compromised immunity should take extra caution and consideration for visiting any areas in the community linked to confirmed cases of COVID-19.
As always, it is important to remain vigilant in recognizing any symptoms and seeking care when appropriate. Please visit the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to learn more about symptoms and when to seek care.
