As of 5 p.m. 4/8/2020. Due to the lag time in state reported data, Reid Health is sharing with the community its own data. This data will no longer include the number of negative tests results as studies are showing a relatively high "false negative" outcome of testing.
* ISDH and independent lab tests; includes inpatient, outpatient, and ED testing to date
As of 4/8/2020, Indiana has 5,943 cases. There have been 203 deaths in the state, according to Indiana State Department of Health.
What to do if you have respiratory symptoms or fear exposure to COVID-19:
- Call the Reid Health Respiratory Clinic hotline at 765-965-4200 ( 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.) for consultation for possible appointment, OR
- Log into the Reid HealthNOW virtual app for COVID-19 screening/consultation.
- Appointments can be made using either of these options to be assessed at the Respiratory Clinic, 1501 Chester Boulevard. Remember: patients MUST have an appointment and this is NOT a COVID-19 test site.
- A "no visitor" policy is implemented with exceptions only for caregivers when a patient is not able to function alone. In the case of children, one healthy parent can be present. The parent accompanying the child will be screened and provided with a mask to wear for the duration of the visit.
- Staff at the entrances of the main campus and physician offices will screen anyone before they can enter. Their temperature may also be taken. All patients, including children, are masked upon entry.
- When appropriate, people will be asked to return their cars for phone triage if COVID-19 risk is determined.
- Anyone with potential COVID-19 exposure or symptoms should visit the Reid HealthNOW virtual app (24 hours) for a screening or call the Respiratory Clinic hotline, (765) 965-4200 (7 a.m. to 6 p.m.)
Wearing hand-made masks
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings. CDC also advises the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Learn more: https://www.cdc.gov/…/prevent…/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html
Reid Health is accepting handmade cloth face coverings (masks), to distribute to our community in need. The need is great and we will accept and distribute all the masks you can produce. Distributing these masks in non-clinical settings, allows us to conserve and utilize our Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) supply at the front lines of patient care.
Help prevent the spread of infection
- Wash your hands often.
- Avoid touching your face with your hands.
- Cover your cough if you have symptoms.
- Stay home if you are sick.
- Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces regularly.
