COVID-19 Stands for Coronavirus Disease 2019. It is caused by the virus “Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)” from the family of coronaviruses. In December of 2019, this new coronavirus began spreading, and has now become a global problem (pandemic). A person who is sick with the virus SARS-CoV-2 has the disease COVID-19.
Components of the virus can be detected in the feces of infected patients although less is known about the likelihood of intact viral particles from fecal contaminants actually causing an infection in another individual. Likewise, the risk of transmitting virus through saliva, or other body fluids has not yet been studied in detail. Regular and proper hand washing is the best method to reduce such transmission risk.
Yes. From the time a person contracts the SARSCoV-2 virus, it can take up to 14 days for symptoms to develop (average of 5 days). Viral shedding and transmission to another person can occur several days prior to symptom development.
Yes. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that infected patients or those suspected of being infected, such as anyone with new onset respiratory symptoms, should wear a mask to reduce the spread of respiratory droplets with coughing. Due to the symptom onset varying and the population of asymptomatic, for the safety of our patients and staff we require masks to be worn while in our facility.
Please contact your healthcare provider by phone or website portal to make them aware of any symptoms you are having before coming in person. They will give you recommendations about the best course of action.
