Care for non-emergent symptoms of COVID-19

If you develop symptoms of COVID-19, STAY HOME and consult a medical provider using KRMC’s web-based telemedicine service, Care Anywhere.

This service allows you to receive medical care at home without an office visit. Operating hours are Monday-Friday, 7:00 am – 9:00 pm, and Saturday and Sunday, 7:00 am – 7:00pm.

With a Care Anywhere visit, you will answer questions about your symptoms online. A healthcare provider will evaluate your answers and provide a treatment plan within 24 hours, which may include an order for a COVID-19 diagnostic test.

If you were exposed to COVID-19, but have no symptoms

If you learn that you were in close contact with someone who later tested positive for COVID-19, STAY HOME and avoid contact with others for at least 10 days from the time of your exposure.  

Monitor your health for symptoms of COVID-19, including taking your temperature twice daily.  If you have a fever (above 100.1 degrees F.) or develop other COVID-19 symptoms, consult a medical provider using KRMC’s telemedicine service Care Anywhere.
