The SHC continues to see many individuals with influenza and people with milder cold symptoms. Please be reminded that these infections are common in our community at this time.
If you are experiencing mild cold or flu-like symptoms, here are a few other things you can do to feel better until you recover:
- Stay home and get plenty of rest to give your body a chance to recover and to avoid exposing others.
- Don't smoke or drink alcohol.
- HYDRATE enough to keep your urine clear or light yellow - you get dehydrated very quickly when you have a fever.
- Make sure you have a thermometer. Thermometers are available for purchase in our pharmacy.
- For fever (100.4 or higher), muscle aches, sore throat, or headache you can take ibuprofen (like Motrin or Advil) or acetaminaphen (like Tylenol). Please follow directions on the medication packaging, do not exceed recommended dosages, and seek telephone advice if your fever >100F is not relieved after taking medication.
- For a cough: cough medicine you buy over the counter with dextromethorphan may help, but hot tea with honey is at least as good, breathing in steam is very soothing, and cough lozenges with ingredients like honey or menthol can help to keep the cough under control during the day, especially if you have to be alert. Our pharmacy has over-the-counter cough medication available for purchase.
If you are ill with flu-like symptoms and feel you need to be seen, please call the SHC (209) 667-3396 or other health care provider before you arrive. This allows your health care provider to better evaluate you over the phone and determine the best level of care while preventing the possible spread of illness.
Please call your healthcare provider, personal insurance provided Nurse Advice Line or the SHC at (209) 667-3396 or go to your nearest emergency room immediately if you are ill and fall into one of the following categories:
- Symptoms (fever or cough/difficulty breathing) AND
- travel to any area with sustained transmission within the 2 weeks before symptoms start
OR contact with a proven case.
This does NOT necessarily mean you have coronavirus, but it means you should get assessed ASAP. CDC guidelines determine who can be tested for coronavirus; these are updated regularly as the situation evolves.
