Kenmore Family Medicine
In observance of Memorial Day, Kenmore Family Medicine will be closing at 2 pm on Friday, May 27th and will be closed Monday, May 30th.
AS OF 4/22/2022:
With the uptick in Covid cases, Kenmore Family Medicine is requiring face masks in our office. This is for the safety of our patients and our staff. Thank you!!
When to seek emergency medical attention if you have tested POSITIVE for Covid:
Look for emergency warning signs* for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, call 911 or seek emergency medical care immediately:
- Trouble breathing
- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- New confusion
- Inability to wake or stay awake
- Pale, gray, or blue-colored skin, lips, or nail beds, depending on skin tone
*This list is not all possible symptoms. Please call us for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.
Call 911 or call ahead to your local emergency facility: Notify the operator that you are seeking care for someone who has or may have COVID-19.
If you have tested positive and do not have any of the emergency warning signs:
- Stay home. Most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and can recover at home without medical care. Do not leave your home, except to get medical care. Do not visit public areas.
- Take care of yourself. Get rest and stay hydrated. Take over-the-counter medicines, such as acetaminophen, to help you feel better.
When can you end isolation? What do you do after?
If you tested positive but you were never sick, you can end isolation after five days.
If you were sick, you can end isolation when:
- You haven’t had a fever for 24 hours (without using a fever suppressant like ibuprofen or Tylenol)
- AND your other symptoms are getting better (The exception is the loss of smell and taste because that can last weeks or months, and doesn’t necessarily mean you’re contagious.)
After five days, if you’re still feeling sick, wait until you’ve met the above criteria to leave isolation, the CDC says.
In both cases, after the five-day isolation period ends, the CDC says you can re-enter the world. However, you should wear a mask anytime you’re around other people, including members of your household.
