As of 3/22/2020, there have not been any confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Boundary or Bonner Counties. This is updated every day at 5 pm on the following website http://coronavirus.idaho.gov/ . We encourage all our patients to exercise common sense and caution, minimize unnecessary interactions, practice good hygiene including hand washing, and help each other out. Our staff is committed to helping this community in every way possible to prevent the spread of this (and every other) virus.
Update on Testing: If you are wondering if you should be tested, call the following number and they will evaluate your risk level 877-415-5225. Tests are limited and backlogged currently. Area labs are now advising the following: if you are low risk and asymptomatic, stay home. If you are mildly symptomatic or moderate risk, stay home -- testing is not advised. If you are high risk or moderately symptomatic, contact your doctor's office and testing will be considered. If you have severe symptoms, proceed to the emergency room.
Just a reminder, if you suspect exposure or symptoms, we ask that you follow the above protocol - do not come into the clinic as we do not have tests available here, and you increase risk of exposure to others.
Thank you so much for being the best part of our practice, and let's all work together to keep our community healthy and safe!
