The in-home medical care you need during the pandemic.

The novel coronavirus, resulting in the illness COVID-19, has been sweeping the globe since late 2019. A respiratory virus with flu-like symptoms, it’s very contagious and has caused numerous deaths worldwide—not to mention a changing way of life for Americans everywhere as we continue to follow the CDC’s social distancing guidelines.

That’s where DispatchHealth can help. We can test and treat COVID-19 in the comfort of your own home, along with all of the same acute medical conditions we’ve always treated. Our medical providers wear a plethora of personal protection equipment and clean our cars thoroughly between visits to ensure the safety of our patients. You can trust that you’re in good hands with us.

Symptoms of COVID-19

Think you might have coronavirus? Emergency symptoms of COVID-19 include:

  • Shortness of breath/trouble breathing
  • New confusion
  • Pressure or pain in the chest
  • Bluish face or lips
  • An inability to wake up or stay awake

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, seek medical care immediately. Additional symptoms include:

  • Chills or fever
  • Congestion/runny nose
  • Fatigue
  • Cough
  • Diarrhea
  • A sore throat
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Headache
  • Body/muscle aches
  • A new loss of smell or taste

There’s currently no cure or vaccine for COVID-19, but most patients only experience mild symptoms and can make a full recovery at home. Elderly or immunocompromised individuals, however, are at higher risk of developing serious complications from COVID-19 and often require hospitalization. To prevent contracting coronavirus, follow the CDC’s guidelines for staying safe.

If left untreated

Coronavirus cases are often mild and don’t require treatment for a full recovery, but in some cases, hospitalization is required. There have been more than 100,000 deaths in the U.S. alone since February 2020, so it’s essential to seek medical treatment if you’ve begun to notice emergency symptoms of COVID-19. For non-emergency symptoms, rest and in-home care is often all you need to make a full recovery.
