The coronavirus pandemic is continuing to spread throughout Texas. This means that more of us are showing signs of the disease. Most cases of COVID-19 are mild. However, the thought of catching the coronavirus is still scary. If you think you have this disease, then it’s important to follow the right steps. Here’s how you can stay comfortable and keep your loved ones safe.
Keep an Eye on Your Symptoms
There are lots of different coronavirus symptoms. While some are very mild, others can be very uncomfortable and even dangerous. Keep track of any severe symptoms, including fevers, in case you need emergency care. This will help doctors pick the best treatment for you.
Get Health Advice Remotely
If you think you have coronavirus, then you most likely want a doctor’s advice. Talking to a doctor is definitely the right move. However, it’s very important that you reach out to your provider remotely. Call your doctor’s office or see if a televisit is available. Most COVID-19 patients recover at home. If you do need to see a doctor in person, the staff needs to know that you are coming. Visiting a doctor’s office or hospital without an appointment could spread the virus.
Isolate Yourself Properly
Many people with COVID-19 do not get officially diagnosed with a coronavirus test. This means that it is absolutely critical that you self-isolate, even if you have not received a COVID-19 test. This will reduce the risk of you potentially spreading the virus to other members of your household. Here are some tips on how to self-isolate correctly.
