Call ahead to describe symptoms before entering

Jul 27, 2020

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Family Care Network’s top priority has been the safety of our patients and staff.

Currently, Covid-19 cases are rising in Washington state. To maintain the safety of our patients and staff, please call your FCN clinic or Urgent Care to describe your symptoms before your visit.

People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – from mild to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus and may include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

You can help reduce the spread of COVID-19: wash your hands often, put 6 feet between yourself and others who don’t live in your household, wear a face mask in public places, clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces, cover your coughs and sneezes, and monitor your health daily. If you feel sick, please stay home unless to seek medical care.
