WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE SICK

If you experience symptoms such as fever, cough, or have difficulty breathing, and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you have recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus):

  • IU Health has launched a virtual clinic to offer individuals in Indiana regardless of age free Coronavirus (COVID-19) screenings using the IU Health Virtual Visit app. Staffed 24/7 with IU Health physicians, advance practice providers and registered nurses, the clinic will screen patients from home, potentially eliminating the need to visit physician offices, urgent cares or emergency departments. The team will recommend and facilitate appropriate pathways for care, and provide direct access and communication with local hospitals as medically appropriate.  Coronavirus Virtual Visits Instruction Flyer
  • The CDC now has a "Coronavirus Self-Checker" to use as a guide when making decisions and seeking appropriate medical care. This is an additional option to the IU Health Virtural Visit app to help someone determine their risk.
  • OR call ahead before visiting a doctor’s office or emergency room.

If you have additional questions, you can call the ISDH Call Center 24/7 toll free at 877-826-0011 Public press #1; Providers press #2
