Riverside Health Care issued the following announcement on March 21.

The severity of COVID-19 symptoms ranges from mild to severe. If you’ve had recent close contact with a COVID-19 patient or you’ve traveled recently to an area where COVID-19 is active, it may be more likely that your symptoms are due to COVID-19. If you suspect you have COVID-19, please contact your doctor’s office, call the Riverside Healthcare COVID-19 hotline at (815) 219-4037, or use RiversideMyChart on your smartphone, tablet, or computer to start a virtual visit provider who can review your symptoms and give specific care recommendations.

If your symptoms are mild you will likely be directed to stay home to protect others from illness and follow the CDC’s recommended guidance for self-care. If you’re referred to a medical facility, remember to call ahead and let them know your symptoms before you go in.
