Here’s Who to Call in Southeast Minnesota if You Are Concerned About Covid-19 Symptoms
I suffer from asthma and it gets triggered by allergies pretty easily so when I'm outside, I tend to get stuffed up and start coughing. Before I realized that the pollen counts were off the charts, I did what many are doing and started to Google my symptoms to see if I might have Covid-19. If you do have concerns about symptoms, do you know who to call or what to do next?
Olmsted County put together some great info with phone numbers for both Mayo Clinic and Olmsted Medical Center patients. Check out the info below that they shared on their Facebook page:
Concerned you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms?
If you are a Mayo Clinic patient, call the Mayo Clinic COVID-19 Help Line at 507-293-9525. This help line is active on weekdays from 7 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
If you are an Olmsted Medical Center patient or if you do not have a primary care provider or if you do not have insurance, call the Olmsted Medical Center COVID-19 Triage Line at 507-292-7266 on weekdays from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and weekends from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
