Covid-19 Update for Rogue Women’s Health.
RWH community, for the most up to date information about COVID please visit the CDC or the Oregon Health Authority websites.
We are continuing to see patients per the guidelines released by Gov. Kate Brown.
What you can do during this time:
Continue to stay home as much as possible and get vaccinated when you are eligible. Being away from others, while challenging socially, and contrary to how many of us have lived up to this point, keeps you from being exposed to potentially sick people and keeps those people from being exposed to you. Please only go out when necessary.
Maintain social distancing: 6 feet away is plenty of space when outside or in a large room to keep each other safe. The concern over transmission of a respiratory infection like SARS-CoV2 (Covid-19), is through aerosols (tiny particles with virus) and droplets (larger particles). Keeping distance, at first awkward, is the way to get through the day around other people interacting, but not putting either person at risk. Try to maintain this distance when you are at the store or waiting in lines.
If you feel sick, call the Asante Nurse line, 541-789-2813 and they will help you identify if you need to be tested for the Covid-19 infection. Monitor for fever, chills, body aches and shortness of breath.
We appreciate you keeping us informed of your health and any symptoms you may have. Being considerate of the community, focusing on the WE instead of the ME, will flatten the curve keeping our local medical systems from being overwhelmed while protecting the most vulnerable among us.
