Your health and safety are our top priority.
Odessa Regional Medical Center continues to monitor the national and global situation of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and is prepared to support our community and safely care for any ill patient. Out of an abundance of caution, we have activated hospital preparedness protocols to:
- Prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including COVID-19, within the facility.
- Maintain the health and wellbeing of our employees.
- Promptly identify and isolate patients with possible COVID-19 and inform the correct facility staff and public health authorities.
- Care for patients with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 as part of routine operations, and potentially care for a larger number of patients in case of an escalating outbreak.
What to do if you're sick
Stay home except to get medical care
- Stay home: People who are mildly ill with COVID-19 are able to recover at home. Do not leave, except to get medical care. Do not visit public areas.
- Stay in touch with your doctor. Call before you get medical care. Be sure to get care if you feel worse or you think it is an emergency.
- Avoid public transportation: Avoid using public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.
- As much as possible, you should stay in a specific “sick room” and away from other people in your home. Use a separate bathroom, if available.
- Limit contact with pets & animals: You should restrict contact with pets and other animals, just like you would around other people.
- Although there have not been reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19, it is still recommended that people with the virus limit contact with animals until more information is known.
Call Ahead before visiting your doctor
Call ahead: If you have a medical appointment, call your doctor’s office or emergency department, and tell them you have or may have COVID-19. This will help the office protect themselves and other patients.
Monitor your symptoms
- Seek medical attention, but call first: Seek medical care right away if your illness is worsening (for example, if you have difficulty breathing).
- Call your doctor before going in: Before going to the doctor’s office or emergency room, call ahead and tell them your symptoms. They will tell you what to do.
