Lawrence General Hospital now has two new COVID-19 (Coronavirus 2019) community screening resources where patients, families, and providers in the community can obtain an assessment of their COVID-19 risk, possible need for testing, and recommendations for next steps:

  • BY PHONE: The Lawrence General Hospital COVID-19 (Coronavirus 2019) Community Screening line is staffed by one of our nurses 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can be reached by calling us at (978) 946-8409. In an effort to reduce transmission, we ask that individuals call the screening line prior to seeking COVID-19 screening at the hospital; unless you are experiencing a medical emergency.

  • ONLINE: The community can also use Lawrence General's new online screening tool, where you'll be prompted to answer several questions and will be contacted by a nurse for follow-up guidance. Access at: bit.ly/38HqJsz

Current treatment for COVID-19 is supportive care as there is no cure available at this time. Most cases of COVID-19 will be mild to moderate, much like the flu, with only a small group requiring hospitalization.

 

Please note: This COVID-19 specific phone screening line will not provide medical treatment.

Lawrence General Hospital ahora tiene dos nuevos recursos de detección comunitaria COVID-19 (Coronavirus 2019) en donde pacientes, familiares y proveedores de la comunidad pueden obtener una evaluación del riesgo por COVID-19, posibles pruebas médicas y las recomendaciones para seguir los siguientes pasos:

  • POR TELÉFONO: La línea de detección comunitaria COVID-19 (Coronavirus 2019) de Lawrence General Hospital es atendida por una de nuestras enfermeras las 24 horas del día, los 7 días de la semana. Usted puede comunicarse llamándonos al (978) 946-8409. En un esfuerzo por reducir la propagación, pedimos que las personas llamen a la línea de detección antes de solicitar las pruebas de detección de COVID-19 en el hospital; a menos que esté experimentando una emergencia médica.

  • POR INTERNET: La comunidad también puede utilizar el nuevo recurso de detección vía internet que tiene Lawrence General, en el cual se le pedirá que responda varias preguntas y será contactado por una enfermera para una guía de seguimiento: bit.ly/2W95JIK

 

El tratamiento actual para COVID-19 es la atención médica de control ya que no hay cura disponible en este momento. La mayoría de los casos de COVID-19 serán de leves a moderados, similares a los casos de gripe o influenza (flu), con sólo un pequeño grupo de personas que requieran hospitalización.

 

Tenga en cuenta: Esta línea telefónica específica de detección COVID-19 no proporcionará ningún tratamiento médico.
