If you have returned from overseas, or have been in close or casual contact with any confirmed novel coronavirus cases in the past 14 days AND are experiencing the symptoms above:

  • Make an appointment to see your doctor. Call the doctor first to let them know your travel history so they can prepare for your visit.

Patients who are tested are to remain in isolation until the test results are available.
