COVID-19

Here at St. Luke’s we are working diligently to ensure our patients receive the best care we can provide. All of our facilities have hugely been affected by COVID-19 in some way. We continue to perform COVID testing when a test is deemed necessary. We will continue to do our part in to help to slow the spread. 

How to Protect Yourself When Going Out

  • Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth to help protect yourself and others.
    • Choose a mask with two or more layers of washable, breathable fabric that fits snugly against the sides of your face.
  • Stay 6 feet apart and avoid crowds.
  • Wash your hands often

Am I at high risk of getting very sick?

  • People of any age can get COVID-19, even healthy young adults and children.
  • Those who are older, or have certain underlying medical conditions are at higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19.

 

What to Do If You Become Sick

  • Stay at home except to get medical care. Most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and recover at home without medical care.
  • Isolate yourself from other members of your family to prevent spread to them and those they have contact with.
  • Even if you don’t feel sick, you can spread COVID-19 to others.
  • Get care immediately if you are having emergency warning signs like trouble breathing, pain, or pressure in chest.
