Think you may have coronavirus?
Here’s what to do.
Guidelines to the public:
Most up to date information on this rapidly changing situation can be found on the CDC website.
You can also receive Idaho-specific updates at coronavirus.idaho.gov.
Important to note about the illness:
There are currently shortages of the tools to test (swabs) and the availability of labs to perform tests (only certain labs with certain capabilities/analyzers can perform the test).
If you are tested based on criteria, you must self isolate until your test results return. If you do not meet the criteria to be tested but are still ill, you should self isolated as least 72 hours after your symptoms have resolved.
Kootenai Health is working closely with Panhandle Health District and the county on preparedness.
