The decision to expand these visitor restrictions is a collaborative effort among Atrium Health and six other regional health systems including Carolinas HealthCare System Blue Ridge, CaroMont Health, Cone Health, Novant Health, Randolph Health and Wake Forest Baptist Health.
For those who are concerned they many have contracted COVID-19, the CDC and Health Department are actively working to increase access to testing. Testing is currently being focused on patients who have symptoms of the flu and who came in contact with a confirmed coronavirus case.
For those that have flu or cold-like symptoms, please stay home from work or school until you have no fever for at least 48 hours without Tylenol, Advil/Ibuprofen or other fever lowering medicines. If your breathing gets worse, or you still have a fever after five days, please contact Atrium Health before visiting a doctor’s office, urgent care or emergency department.
Please consider using Virtual Visit services to prevent spreading germs by getting care from the comfort of your home at www.AtriumHealth.org/VirtualVisit.
